Hummingbird

High Five Fly By


Hummingbird, Female, Flying, Bird, This female ruby-throated hummingbird seemed to be offering (and expecting) a high-five as she zipped by.

I finally got around to taking some hummingbird photos yesterday.  I’m a bit rusty at the high-speed skills it takes to snap one of these.  I’ll have to get out there more.

Tiny Details

This male, ruby-throated hummingbird was just as intent on keeping an eye on me as I was in keeping an eye on him.

This was my first attempt at snapping a hummingbird photo this year.  I didn’t think it went well, but…on second thought.  I’ve had to change the way I snag these photos so I’ve not had time to perfect my method.  I’ll be working on that.

Short Stuff

This cute rascal is a Ruby-throated hummingbird.  A tiny, zippy bird that is one of my favorites…and most challenging to photograph.  This particular one seems to be a short, stocky gal – but she wears it well, don’t you think?

I believe the hummingbirds that have entertained us this year have flown south for the winter.  We haven’t seen one for a week or so.

Two female Ruby-throated hummingbirds perform a delicate dance by my window.

Well, actually…in the interest of full disclosure, they were both flying by my window – just as you see them here – but not at exactly the same time.  I combined two different photos to make the scene more interesting.  They only missed each other by a minute or two.

Boastful

This male, Ruby-throated hummingbird was showing off for me. I love it when the light hits their gorget just right and you get a flash of that iridescent, ruby-red color they derive their name from.

For bonus points…

gor·get (gôrjt)
n.
1. A piece of armor protecting the throat.
2. An ornamental collar.
3. The scarflike part of a wimple covering the neck and shoulders.
4. A band or patch of distinctive color on the throat of an animal, especially an area of brightly colored feathers on the throat of a bird.

I spent some time the other day taking my first hummingbird photos of the season. This is a female, ruby-throated hummingbird looking straight at the camera.  The wings are just a blur.

To get this unique look, I took all the color out of the original image, added a bit of sepia tone and then a texture effect.
