Hummingbird Was Too Fast

You have to be really fast to photograph the tiny hummingbirds. I went out to check on the bluebirds earlier and tried to capture a hummingbird at the deck feeder. Uploaded the photo and could not find him. He flew as I snapped I guess. They are such tiny birds, you have to sit and wait to get their photos. Maybe later I can try again. They are so much fun to watch. For now you can see the hummingbird feeder! And the garden in the back. The bluebird house, roses, bench, angel and butterfly bush.

Yes, we have to be fast to photograph the animals that visited us. I can relate to that. Yesterday, butterflies and bumblebees were visiting my flowers and I was so excited stalking them, taking videos and photos.

I usually sit on the deck and wait but it had been raining, I will get one later.

@CarolDM I see. You can zoom your camera if you can.

Your yard is like a wonderland, I love it! I've seen hummingbird, they are stationary for a short time, while the wings are flapping over 1000 mph!

@CarolDM We were promised rain, but never did get any. I sure enjoy the photos you share:) Nature is where we can enjoy life to the fullest and it's 'free!'

@kobesbuddy I think we got it all. Thanks again, as you know I spend much of my time in the screen room and backyard.

The birds can easily notice you and fly away.

@CarolDM It's difficult to stalk on them. If you want, better have a good lens that could zoom while you're in a far distance.

They are so beautiful and yet just as fast. I always wondered how JJ has captured pictures of them. He must be fast.

He is fast and he uses a bigger camera as well. At the time I was going out to get other pics and only had my iPhone camera.

@CarolDM He has mentioned that he sometimes has his camera set up on the tripod aimed at the window, he's always ready that way.

Birds are so fast and when they are tiny as well, I don't doubt they're hard to capture.
