One new photograph, almost every day of the year

2014—Coming In For A Landing

I realize these shots are almost identical to one I posted a few days ago, but if I keep practicing with this 80-400mm lens, eventually I’ll feel comfortable with it. I tried getting shots of the hummer twice but it flew off before I could get the lens to focus on the bird. The third time proved the charm when I plopped down in front of the fountain and waited until the hummer returned. It was only a minute or so and the bird cooperated and posed for me and I even managed to keep the lens in focus for most of the shots.

    Such sweet shots! And great focus and clarity! I don’t think you need to worry about handling that lens! BTW, my fountain is finally getting hooked up next Wednesday and Thursday before the next rains- hope my hummers haven’t left by then!
