2020—Eye Still on the Action

The male Broad-billed Hummingbirds in Madera Canyon dominated the feeders. They swarmed around much like the honeybees darting in and out and chasing away other hummers. This male perched briefly on a nearby twig, keeping his eye on the action the whole time he sat. It wasn’t long before he buzzed away to vie for position again. Getting more than one or two shots of a perched hummer was almost as challenging as photographing them in flight.
