About This Image

female Hummingbird feeding from Bleeding Heart flowers in our patio area. In its eye is the reflection of our house front!! You can see this in the larger version, so she was watching me as she was feeding. Taken from the open front window on telephoto. This female seems to be getting a little used to seeing me, but the male is very elusive. And he has such wonderful iridescent red/gold colours on this throat too! - so am Hoping to capture a good shot of him sometime : )


great shot and a question

Hi - I love your hummingbird photos, Especially the ones with the monarda. I am putting together a powerpoint presentation on pollination and am wondering if I could get permission to use a couple of these shots of hummingbirds, giving you proper credit of course. thanks for considering it ! .

Hi Anne, am glad I noted it there. Am not on IM at all these days, have been too busy. If you email me, I'll get back to you, am not sure I have your email address.

No, Alandra - I hadn't seen that. I am so sorry. We need to get our times synchronized. Somehow we are always passing.

thanks very much, Carol and Vicki. No Vicki, have never used a remote for any of my pics. No tripod either.
Guest - May 01, 2006 08:19 PM EDT
These are beautiful, Alandra - are you using a remote along with the telephoto? They are excellent
Guest - May 01, 2006 06:13 PM EDT
Gorgeous photo of the Hummer!!! Carol

thankyou Talsi for the nice comments. Am pretty sure the body has movement as they are feeding,-- well I guess it would be, as the wings are going round and round, and the tail is definitely moving. But the head and beak are relatively still, being inside the tubular type flowers, which probably accounts for why the head is in focus.

Another great bird photo. I like it that the head and eyes are in good focus and the way the wings look. Good job.
