A male Rufous Hummingbird and heavily cropped. The shutter speed was 1/250 yesterday’s was 1/1000. I’m not as happy with this one but find the difference instructive. (137 of 365)

Both hummingbird shots are terrific – how fortunate you are to have these creatures nearby for the photo ops.

Well, at 60 wing beats per second you can see why a fast shutter speed is necessary. I like it.

This is awesome. I love the sense of motion in his wings. Catching a hummingbird is awe inspiring.

Great example. The head colors are so rich. Do you have a feeder nearby?

This is even better than the last one! You are awesome!

I love the capture of the wing motion, and the colors. Humming birds are difficult creatures to capture in their full glory. You did good.
