2016—Christmas Eve Hummer
I got an early Christmas present yesterday morning when the male Anna’s hummingbird cooperated by staying more than a few seconds while he sipped nectar from the sage blossoms. I managed to track him successfully as he moved among the blossoms. Although the red of the hummer’s gorget wasn’t reflected in the rainy morning light, the photo still has a Christmassy feel with the red and green of the sage so I decided to use it for my Christmas Eve post. Hand held; Nikon D5 with 300mm lens and 1.7x teleconverter; camera set to high speed crop.
