2015—Wing Blur

The weather was surprisingly mild for this time of year Sunday afternoon, so I sat on my patio with my camera in my lap and enjoyed the slight breeze. When I heard the hummer’s chirp, I focused on him at one of the feeders and captured a few shots before realizing that my ISO was set to 100, too low to get a shutter speed fast enough to freeze the wing movement. When I downloaded the shots, I decided the blur of the wings was quite appealing. At a shutter speed of 1/60 though, there is still some movement of the head and the eye isn’t in crisp focus in of the shots, but I love the patterns of the wing blur.
