Tiny Poser


Yesterday I was leaving my house to run an errand and as I approached my car I could hear the sound of a humming bird close by.  I looked over at a shrub growing by the walk and saw this guy sitting on a branch.  My first thought was that I'd never get my camera out in time but, I tried anyway.  I had to set down the cold drink I was holding and set down my purse and then get the camera out.  The whole time I did all that this little guy held his pose while keeping an eye on me.  I popped off 5 shots before he decided that was good enough.  I'd say this tiny creature is either a good sport or true ham.

I very seldom see any humming birds around here. When I do see one I get very excited. They look so graceful in flight.

Fantastic! I've never seen a hummingbird so still (we don't have them in Europe, but I've seen many on my travels - the 1st one flew so fast I thought it was a big bee! LOL!).

It's very rare that they stay still that long, unless they're sleeping!

I'd say you are one lucky photographer. These things never stop flitting about when I have a camera out! Beautifully detailed photo, too!
