The Year of the Hummingbirds..

A lot of hummingbirds visited us this year. I spent a lot of time ducking around corners with my camera, trying to capture their essence. I am a huge fan of the hummingbirds. I love how they stake out their territory...every day..and buzz dive anyone who comes near their feeders.

This hummingbird hung around in the same spot for several days. On one overcast day, I shot him with camera flash. The bird's wings were frozen mid flutter by the flash creating one of my favorite images from 2010.
