Saturday's PhotoHunting: A Close-Up

In-Flight close-up . . . .

I happen to be taking photos of these flowers when I spotted this little guy flying around.  It took me a while to capture him near one of the flowers.

  1. Wow Kathy. Hummingbirds move so fast, I'm amazed you were able to get such a great photo of him! It's a great close up shot.

    Happy Friday and have a great weekend!

  2. Wowie! Great capture, Kathy! :b

  3. Hi girls, thanks so much for your comments.

    Annie, yes this little guy/gal was very fast and it took me several tries to get a shot in focus . :) Happy Friday & Weekend to you too!

    YTSL, it was a lucky shot. I waited patiently and set my camera to click as fast as it could. :)

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  4. You were really lucky (and patient probably) what a beautiful picture !

  5. Great capture. I have not seen a real hummingbird, it would be awesome to snap a photo of one when I see it.

  6. Hi everyone, thanks so much for your comments....

    ewok, I'm glad you liked my photo. It was a lucky shot. I had several blurred photos so when I found this one in focus I did the happy dance. :)

    Gattina, yes I was very luck that this little guy hovered on this flower long enough for me to capture him. :)

    ECL, it is a rare sighting for me too. I'm so happy I spotted him and had my camera in hand to attempt my shot.

    Sue, awe, thanks so much. I wish I could've gotten in tighter, but he was so fast I was very lucky to capture him. :)

    Thanks so much everyone. Have a wonderful weekend.

  7. Wow! I've always wanted to get a shot like that!


It's me Trekcapri (aka Kathy). Thanks so much for visiting and leaving a comment.
