That is way more than just a nice catch! (Isn't Oregon too cold in January for these wee guys? Or is my concept of Oregon completely in the realm of fantasy?)

Medford is in southern Oregon, about 25 miles north of California. Temperatures have been in the 40's mostly. I had thought that the hummers had left the area and hadn't put out fresh nectar since November. This guy came around this weekend, so I guess they still come around. There's fresh nectar out there now. I managed to snap about 30 pictures of him. This one was my favorite.

Unfortunately, the day was really overcast and I had to bump the ISO up to 400. The lens I used was wide open at 5.6 ( I HAVE to get a faster long lens!!! ). I'm not terribly impressed with this lens as it is (Canon 75-300 USM IS). Oh well!

Because you know what might have been, you're criticising yourself based on that. Because I don't know, I can happily enjoy your photo. Is this an example of ignorance being bliss?

(The Brits spell it "criticize," which makes more sense. However, they have "bonnets" on their cars, so I guess we're even.)
