2015—Another Morning Bath

I haven’t shot my hummers lately and now that Mady’s here and uses the fountain as her water dish, the hummers tend to avoid it and scold Mady from afar. This morning I noticed one of the hummers bathing (I think it’s the female) and since I already had the camera on the tripod, I walked outside with Mady close at my side. I plunked the tripod down in a way that prevented Mady from heading straight to the fountain to drink. The hummer looked at me, then continued bathing. I’m pretty sure there’s a nest nearby but I can’t find it.

The most interesting thing about these shots is that the shutter speed was 1/25 so I’m lucky that any are in focus.

Focal Length 400mm (on D7100, equivalent of 640mm); ISO 200; f/5.6, 1/25

  1. Awwww!!!! Amazing at 1/25 shutter speed! Our landscaper is coming over this week to turn on water and set up the fountain again- and we finally have one hummer. Last year it was the finches in the fountain- maybe this year the hummingbirds will enjoy it!
