Hovering - Macro Monday

Not a true "Macro" but as close as I could get without a zoom.

Hummingbirds fascinate me. I could watch them for hours.
I was lucky to capture this little guy in hover mode!

wow what a great capture - we don't have hummingbirds here but I would love to see one in real life sometime.

Great photo of the hummer. Confirmed reports indicate the first Ruby-throated Hummingbirds made it across the Gulf of Mexico a few days ago. They are heading north. We must just be patient.

Amazing. I love it!

I rarely see hummingbirds and this week I saw two in in the blogosphere. Excellent capture. Any secrets on attracting them? I had no luck last summer.

I envy you, here in Italy we don't have hummingbirds... :(
Great shots, Karen!

I just learned to shoot them. It took a while before you learned how and when to pull the trigger. You did well with this one.

Dimple said...

Nice shot Karen! I have tried to capture a hummer a few times, but they certainly don't care about posing!

minor said...

Is it a lucky bird too?

Lesa said...

Great shot! I always try to capture a shot of the ones with the ruby throats-- very hard to do!

Thanks for the visit!

He's wonderful! It will be a while before I see them around here. :)

I love this shot! It looks like a composition but its a candid shot! The birds around my place stay because of all the fruit trees around us!
