Ok, can't help it, more hummingbird shots! But this one of the hummingbird with this bug?!?!?! Love it!!!! I was so excited Wednesday after capturing some shots of the hummingbirds that I have basically been stalking all year, and thought FINALLY! I captured them!!! Well, then I got even MORE shots. I was and am so excited. It was unreal. They were so close to me- they were not bothered that I was standing out there at all. They definitely seem to have their preferences though plant wise- the White Salvia and the Black and Blue Salvia. They venture to other things but inevitably come back to these two.
I was having so much fun with them buzzing around me. They could care less if I walk up closer to them or stand right in the middle of the Salvia to get the shot. There seem to be two groups of two that fly together. I have yet to capture that- them in air playing Avatar but I also haven't tried, maybe I will go for that next.
Today someone told me that they are more than likely fighting. Interesting. I am going to keep watching and see. I knew they were territorial but these two sets that keep together seem fine with each other- perhaps a male and a female? I don't know a lot about hummingbirds and am still reeling that I have even been able to get any shots of them that are not total blurs that I don't hardly know what to do with myself.
