We keep moving months and I keep delaying on posting images – so I suppose I may just have to go back and put some in out of sequence. But this date has rolled over and it’s September.
Summer’s back is broken, soon the cool air of fall will be here, along with the yellow aspens.
It’s been a tough summer for hummingbird action, mostly I think because there has been a very aggressive male that has succeeded in chasing away lots of the other birds. My counter to his aggression was to put up two more feeders, figuring that he could not watch them all at the same time.
Last night we were sitting out and enjoying the late evening when a couple of them decided to show up. I figured I’d give my new pocket camera more of a workout and grabbed a couple of shots. For something you can put in your pocket, I’m pretty pleased with my new Panasonic Lumix dmc zs7.
In a way, these next posts will probably be more of a testing ground for my new camera than anything else.
They are not the greatest, but using a pocket camera and flash, shooting from underneath, what’s to be expected. The better shots will be showing the colors of the birds, but thats pretty impossible from this angle. The top photo is a male, the bottom a female.
