I Finally Did It !


I was sitting on the front porch early this morning in my jammies wrapped in my blanket  as it was chilly enjoying my cup of tea with my camera in hand and my buddy Miggs by my side whilst the sun was rising . I have two Hummer feeders in the front as this year I noticed the Hummers were occupying the big tree at the end of the driveway that reaches over part of the front porch !

The little hummer was playing with me for a bit but I finally got photos of him and stopped his wings in flight  WOOHOO ! It has taken me a long time to get the right setting on my camera and time it all perfectly ! My settings were  ISO 400  Fstop 4.5  Shutter speed  1/2000 of a second !

                           I love these little guys , they are playful when one has a camera on them !

Then he decided to take a little break on the tiny hanger of his feeder and let me take more photos of him !

                         and I am loving the beautiful weather and all the nature that goes with it !

                                          Until next time  have a great day & Thanks for popping by !

They are fun to capture. I got a few shots of our hummers too. Hubby said if I were using 35mm film instead of digital, I'd have to get a part time job. It seems it takes about a million tries to get one good shot.
