Abbey and I switched lenses again today, which we do every so often. Now I have the 50mm f1.4 on my camera. So this afternoon while she and I and Man-squared were hanging out in my bedroom with all the shades closed to keep the hot sun out, I snapped a few pictures.
Happy mutt. Isn't he photogenic? That's his one good trait.
Concentration. Man-squared is the Angry Birds champion of our house. Probably because he's the only one who plays.
Learning to shoot a silhouette.
Then I went outside and snapped a few pictures of the hummers. Okay, it was more like 53, but I'm not putting them all up here.
Even with a shutter speed of 1/500th of a second, her wings are a blur.
How do I know it's a female? Because these are ruby-throated hummingbirds, and the females have no ruby; only the males do. Isn't that sad? She needs more bling.
I wondered if it might be a juvenile, but then it would have some gray-brown streaking on the throat, which it doesn't. It's a girl.
Be thankful ~
