About This Image

I had just cleaned out my birdbath, walked in the house and turned the pump on when I saw this hummingbird checking it out. Well I ran into my computer room, grabbed my camera and was checking my settings while running to the front door. I slowly moved outside and captured him or her taking a bath.

Great set of hummer bath shots Alan! Nothing worse than a dirty hummingbird...lol. To me, this is the draw to phography. The thrill of a cool capture like this one. And isn't it the truth that you usually never have the camera handy when stuff like this happens? Great job capturing this one buddy! Don

Hi Mary and Carol :) Thanks very much for your kind comments... Yea Mary I was excited, you just know as soon as you get your camera there gone, I guess I need to carry mine around with me even in the house ready for a fast exit into the yard ROFL... Thanks for noticing the little water drops Carol, I switched my ISO to 400 so I would have a fast shutter speed. I did not even noticed the drops until I downloaded the photos.
