Maybe my best shot at snapping a hummer

Among the nicknames given to hummingbirds, this blog says, they have been referred to as “flying jewels” which, you have to admit, kind of describes the glass hummer I photographed a few days ago.

The nickname is why I took the photos, see? Well, okay. It wasn’t really.

Truth time. Sometimes you just have to face up to your limitations and tell it like it is (now take a deep breath).

A glass reproduction on a pole attached to the backyard gate of an East Vancouver home is as close I will probably ever come to being able to photograph a hummingbird in flight (you may exhale now).

Whew! that wasn’t so bad was it? I certainly feel much better. Click the images to enlarge them.
