My First Hummingbird Photo

Got my first hummingbird photo today.  It’s not great quality, but I was excited and had to share.  Hopefully I will get better pictures in the days ahead.

  1. Awesome! Well done! They are hard to get photos of with all their movement. Last month I was able to get a few photos of one perched but all my tries of them at the nectar feeder ended up balls of blurr!!

    1. I’m sure I looked pretty comical if anyone was watching me! I think I was stooping and bending and reaching all sorts of ways trying to keep track of where he was headed next.

      1. Too excited, huh? I know the feeling. I’m sure 1/1600 shutter speed will do the job for you though. Bright summer daylight helps too.

  2. wow – this is a really good one for the first photograph! So far, I have only blurred ones or black silhouettes!! congratulations to you! 🙂
