One new photograph, almost every day of the year

2019—Twenty Nineteen!!

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.
