until you get the prize.
These are (just) two of about 70+ photos we took of the first hummingbirds to arrive last week. For whatever reason, we did not get good result! Study the first photo (with me.) Now why (oh why!) is the bird feeder absolutely crystal clear in this shot and the hummingbird (except its beak) is an absolute blurrrrr of motion?!! Look at the contrast! This is an amazing shot! (My favorite!!) :-)
The second shot is the best photo (of too many, I might add.) Perhaps the camera would simply not cooperate! Or is it that this bird...was as fast...as lightening? (I've seen better shots of lightening, I might add.)
Hence, we have dubbed this bird, "Lightening Bolt."
We will persevere to bring you better, clearer shots (as the summer progresses as we have many hummingbird visitors...)
