Today, In Focus Daily has a new look. It’s still a work in progress but I have been thinking about updating it for some time now and I thought I’d try a little change. And, with my passion for Hummingbirds, it is only appropriate to introduce the new look with a photograph of an Anna’s Hummingbird taken with my new Nikon D6.
The Anna’s Hummingbirds seem to enjoy sitting on the perches I stuck in the pots near the feeders. It is the perfect resting spot between slurps at the feeder or sips of nectar from the salvia. And, it gives me more opportunities to photograph them. I may have to remove that perch that juts into the frame at the lower right. It isn’t used and it doesn’t need to be in the shot. I’m not really sure if this is the subadult Anna’s that’s been spending so much time in the yard but I think it is. His gorget didn’t reflect any color the way the light hit in the late afternoon.
