What did you do on your leave of absence Tracy?
Sat on my couch waiting for hummingbirds.


I swear the little bastards watch my finger and start flying as soon as I start pressing the button to take a shot.


Comments on: "Stalking" (5)

  1. lol, I used to feel the same way when I tried really hard to get BIF shots. Next thing you know you will start looking at telephoto lenses. 🙂

    • It occurred to me that this particular bird may be the perfect subject to use my continuous capture setting on. So I’ve got the camera all ready and the bird just came by the feeder and looked at me turning my camera on and laughed and flew away!

  2. Great Blue Herons and butterflies react to my shutter finger that way. Frustrating, isn’t it?

  3. Birds seem to have a good memory and develop trust, so in the wild after a few attempts the subject would flee. Eventually, they develop more trust which allows the photographer to get closer and better shots. I don’t know anything about hummingbirds but most of the birds I’ve shot behaved in that manner. I’d like to see the results of that camera mode, sounds like a auto function with a pre set continuous shutter, if it has a fast frame rate per second it should work.

  4. You must have been very fast to get these shots! Humming birds have trouble holding still for even a second! Very nice pictures!
