This is the last photograph in my Hummingbird Jamboree series. This series has challenged my nature photography skills to new levels and I am grateful for the experience.
I had the opportunity to photograph hummingbirds for the first time. It certainly was a challenge, however, I am satisfied with some results. Here is a series of my 3 favorite hummingbird photographs. I used the Shutter Priority mode of my camera and my highest shutter speed possible to try to capture the wings in flight. I also adjusted my ISO to 1,ooo as it was an overcast day. I hope that you enjoy the series.
I learned a long time ago that it is an intuitive moment when a photographer actually depresses a shutter speed. This photograph depicts that essence of the intuitive moment – two dogs touching noses and posed perfectly with the wire of the fence between their noses. This was like a zen experience of being in the moment with the animals to capture this image. The dogs are both red-white Siberian Huskies, Spicey (left) and my Nikki II (right), playing at the Rocky Mountain Siberian Husky Club picnic yesterday. Being of the same breed, they also reflect a mirror image of each other. So, enjoy!
