Back at the hummer tree.

I should have brought my tripod. I might have gotten a few more keepers. These ruby throated hummingbirds were moving so fast. They would flutter over to the agave plant for a minute or two and then head back into the bushes to rest. I stood there and watched in awe for over an hour as they went back and forth. The ones without the flash of red on the throat are either females or juveniles. Only the male has the red. I can’t wait until they pass back through here in the fall.

  1. How did you do that?! They move so fast, but you still managed to catch every detail of the wings. These photos are truly amazing!
