A hummingbird visits a feeder at Hummingbird Haven in Smithfield, IL
On August 10th, I traveled on a hot summer day to Smithfield, IL to check out a place called Hummingbird Haven. I haven't had the chance to photograph many hummingbirds over the years so I decided to take some time to photograph a few on this occasion. Hummingbirds can be difficult to photograph and require quite a bit of patience to say the least. I added some of my shots from the day below:
"Making a visit"
"Getting a drink"
A female hummingbird which usually are not as colorful as the male hummingbirds...
A male hummingbird attracts the females by its colors...
Hummingbirds are speedy...
"Up and away"
Quite the photogenic hummingbird here!
Cautiously alert to its surroundings...
It was nice to photograph something new on this day...
Hummingbirds are quite photogenic!
"Hanging on to summer"
That wraps up this post. I'll be posting more posts as I find some more time to focus on photography over the coming months. Stay tuned.
