Here is the female Ruby-Throated Hummingbird that visited my garden the other day. While I was taking these photos, I was thinking to myself the whole time: Oh, please, please, please let the camera be on the correct settings. I was using a manual-focus lens and I didn't want to put the camera down to adjust the aperture, etc. I knew the hummingbird's visit would be fleeting and I didn't want to miss a moment of it. So I fired away and hoped for the best.
I was lucky this time around and I am very happy with how these shots turned out.
Lady hummer even sat on the fence and posed for a rare moment. I think she's resting up and gathering strength for the long flight to her wintering grounds down south. I know one day soon I won't see her anymore. Until next year.
