Hummingbirds

Last Sunday I had another opportunity to attend the hummingbird photography workshop put on by Meggi Raeder and Judy Bingman. Here are some of the shots from the day.

Hummingbird photography workshop

Last weekend I took a workshop led by wildlife photographers Meggi Raeder and Judy Bingham on learning how to photograph hummingbirds. It was a lovely day spent up in the Santa Cruz mountains with a dozen or more hummingbirds darting in and out around the feeders and plants. Even though I didn’t have the most ideal equipment for snapping photos of these birds, I got some nice shots and learned a lot about how to best try to capture these beautiful birds. Go here for info on next years workshop.

Here are a few of my favorites from the day.

 

 

Head on over to Flickr to see the complete set from the day.

This lovely little Anna’s hummingbird was just chittering up a storm to me this morning.

Hummingbird at Fuchsia

The native fuchsias are just starting to bloom. This makes my hummers very happy.

Hummingbird at rest

Hummingbirds are so hard to capture when they are moving that it’s nice when they just hang out for a while and let me capture a lot of shots.
