I didn’t do so well catching action shots of hummingbirds this past summer. I didn’t have many opportunities and when I had them, I usually seemed to blow the chance. This handsome orange fellow though gave me a few captures.
Taken at the end of July as we were spending a week camping in Arapaho National Forest, it was a cool, rainy day, keeping us cooped up at camp. Our entertainment for the day was watching this guy as he vigorously guarded a feeder, ensuring no other hummingbird got a single drink.
By now, most hummingbirds have started their migration south for the winter so I will be anxiously awaiting their return in the spring.
