Through the screen door. . .

For the last few weeks, I’ve spotted this little hummingbird at the feeder- and in the trees watching the feeder.  Yesterday he buzzed me a few times after I refilled the feeder, but, when I took my camera outside yesterday, he patiently watched me from a tree until I went inside.  The only time he ventured near the feeder was to chase another hummingbird out of the yard (at least that was my interpretation of what was happening). But as soon as I went inside, back to the feeder he would go.

I took these shots after dinner last night- through the screen door.  I was way too far away- and had to use ISO’s ranging from 900-1250 to get usable shots.  I think I should have gone higher, because all were underexposed- and lack clarity. These are cropped- I hope to get a lot closer next time.

  1. These are fabulous! I wouldn’t have known that they were taken through the screen; I thought you’d used a texture. I love the bokeh and the composition and the fact that you got the wings stopped. Patience with hummers is the key. They will get used to you eventually. Nice.
