“Hummingbird Jamboree #1”

 Hummingbird #1

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.

“The Intuitive Moment”

 Mirror Image

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!
