I Wore Red

Photographing The Hummingbird

Photographing The Hummingbird

Missed It

Today was the first time I’ve used a tripod to try and capture hummingbird images.  I decided to pull out my other camera and tripod and get some “selfies”.

I wore red.  I looked shleppy.  But it worked.

Red shirt, red (wool felt) hat, and covered my lens with a red kerchief.  It’s hot and humid in southeast Texas right now, and the sweat was rolling down my face and into my eyes (remember, wool felt hat).  I couldn’t really *see* the hummers, so instead I fired off the remote shutter release whenever I *heard* the familiar humming sound of those tiny birds.  Note that little green blur above the flash in the last image.
