Default Hummingbirds in the rain

We are having record rain here in So California.



#1




#2 I probably should have lowered the flash power, I ended up with an outline around the bird.....

Thank you everyone. I love hummingbirds and they were my main reason for buying my camera, to photograph them. If I stand motionless long enough in my yard, they eventually come to drink out of my feeder. Apparently these guys spend the winter here in So Cal and do not fly to Mexico like some other breeds. Here's another one from yesterday....it was very dark

I too like the second one more. Nature conspires to hide the bird in your first shot.

Yes, they do a good job of "hiding". Here is another one.
