2016—Perching Close By
The male Anna’s hummer has taken to perching in the crape myrtle tree on which one of the three feeders hangs. I think I need to clean it up a bit if I’m going to take photos of him perching there. The tree has lots of webs and other buggy debris hanging in it. I took this Saturday morning at the 600mm’s minimum focusing distance (14 feet). The 1.4x teleconverter is attached and the camera was set to high speed crop. I had a little help from the speed light, with morning sun coming from the right, the flash brings out a little more color on the gorget and body feathers on the left.
