This is only 1 of 2 photos I have ever been able to capture of a hummingbird. I find these little creatures to be amazing and beautiful!! I took this photo while we were living in New York in 2010. I was sitting outside on our patio enjoying the afternoon taking photos of the sky when out of the corner of my eye, I saw something fly up to the hummingbird feeder I had attached to our window. I was lucky enough to get this photo. I have only caught a hummingbird on camera one other time and that was 8 years before I took this photo and it wasn’t near as good. 🙂 I’m thankful to technology because zoom capabilities on the camera I had in 2002 was NOWHERE NEAR as good as they are now!!
I enhanced this photo just a little bit to bring out the vibrant colors and also cropped it in Corel Paint Shop Pro X4. This photo was taken with my Nikon CoolPix P100.
Thank you so much for taking the time to look at this special capture!! I hope you have enjoyed it!! If you would like to purchase this work of art, please feel free to view my listing on my Etsy Shop 🙂
