Happy New Year! 2019 begins the ninth year of In Focus Daily. And, the new year would be incomplete here at In Focus Daily if I didn’t post a photograph of one of the Anna’s Hummingbirds that live in my backyard. It has become my tradition to start the new year off with a hummingbird photograph. I’m lucky to have year-round hummingbirds that live in my yard. This is Homer, or Homer Junior, or maybe it’s Homer III by now. In any event, it is a male Anna’s Hummingbird. After voicing his displeasure at my presence and buzzing me in a close fly-by, he settled on a branch and just peered at me. It was extremely blustery on New Year’s Eve and I was unable to capture any in focus flight shots but because I used my D500 with the 500mm lens, I was able to get fairly close to him (at 750mm) while he posed.
