2014—Shake A Tail Feather

When I walked out to the patio this afternoon, I spotted one of the hummingbirds fly away from the fountain and land in the shrubs. I went back inside for my camera, the D7100 with the 70-200mm lens attached, hoping to capture the hummer in motion—flying that is. There was no flying but there was plenty of motion as I watched him (and he eyed me) preening. This little guy was intent on getting rid of the excess water, stropping his beak and chin on a branch, and shaking all over. And, he didn’t have to bend over to shake his tail feathers.
