Maybe my best shot at snapping a hummer

August 12, 2014


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.
