Week 27 of 2017 52 Week Project

Week 27: Hummingbirds in my Backyard

I really thought this week would be fireworks, but was just too lazy to get out the tripod and do them right.  I am struggling to finish this 52 week project.  So that I don’t get lazy and reuse other photos from this week, here is the rest of this week’s hummers.

I have another lead on a hummingbird nest with two eggs!

Week 26: Male Black-Chinned Hummingbird

Finally caught up with a male hummingbird.  It is a Black-chinned.  Shot pretty late in the evening and crazy high ISO 12,800.  The noise reduction filter killed the details.  Wing blur at 1/4000th.

I’m on vacation this week so hopefully I can catch a full frame wall hang of a Ruby-Throated Male, or at least some fireworks.

Week 24 of 2017 52 Week Project

Week 24 of 52, 2017: Female Hummingbird

 I sat out on the patio three nights straight last week, for 30 to 45 minutes each nigth.  Waiting for the perfect Hummingbird Male in a flower.  I took several females flying around but not even one flower photo.  I kept thinking I would get a better one before the end of the week.  Then I got under the weather, and forgot to post.  I came close to just letting the 52 week project die, but I made a public commitment.  Please forgive this one being published late even though it was shot on 6/14/17 @ 7:00 PM.

Haven’t been out and about much to get any nature or wildlife photos.  Going to have to break down and drag the gear out to the patio and shoot some Hummingbirds.
