The Elusive Hummer by JenLand

Currently unavailable for purchase

Finally got a somewhat decent shot of one of the many hummingbirds that frequented my back deck this summer. I spent hours sitting out there with my little kodak easy-share camera at the ready.

Of course I had quite a few weekend hours available for that after the fateful hike to Bonneville Pass in July – I fell and tore a ligament in my knee on that trip so I was forced to sit around for most of the remaining weeks of the summer this year.

At least I got this!

    Perfect capture in flight

  • It was mostly luck – a point and shoot camera deems it so! I had literally gazillions of shots of these little guys before one was worth posting. Thanks blamo!

    Awww I just love these little birds! Excellent shot!

  • Thank you! Some of them have a distinctive sound when they are flying, I heard this one coming and he gave me time to get ready. Sounded like George Jetson’s little space car. :0)
