2023—Not Getting Anywhere

This immature Rufous Hummingbird is working hard but doesn’t seem to be getting anywhere. This is a GIF created from four consecutive images taken at 20 frames per second and slowed to .2 of a second. I had never created a GIF and now that I discovered it is so easy to do in Photoshop, you’ll probably be seeing more GIFs from me, especially because using the Nikon Z9, I can easily take lots of consecutive images in a fraction of a second. I was especially pleased with this series because the edge of the feeder was not a part of any of the images so what you see is what I took at Madera Canyon a few weeks ago.
