Black-chinned Hummingbirds (II)



These Black-chinned are from this summer, since I’m a slacker. I finally figured out all it took was a a bit of patience to get hummingbird flight photos and gave myself one of those pats-on-the-back kind of things once I realized this. (Patience is not really my thing, which is a problem with sometimes, mmhmm).

I have a good collection of flight shots now, so maybe in say, five months or so, I’ll put more up. Since that’s how I do it. I wish the second photo had turned out a little differently, but I’m surprised the gal getting smack-talked turned out sharp at all, so hey hey, I’ll take it! Wild Bird Wednesday
