Getting close... by kayaksailor Getting close... by kayaksailor
Finally caught the Black Chinned hummingbird's throat flash... don't know how I missed this shot, found it in a file from last June! I'd better keep trying and get a better one soon, or they'll be gone for the winter...

Great picture! I like how the throat has that blue color:D How many tries did it take you to finally get this picture?

I've tried many, many times with this little beast :laughing: The Anna's will come right up to the feeder when I'm standing there with the camera but this one waits until I walk away :shakefist: He has a distinctive sound to his wings so I know exactly when he shows up...when I'm not ready!!!

Really? I think he did that for fun :D I remember something like that happened to me before. It was with a mantis I called Manny :la: well, he always walked under a leaf when I try to take a picture.(in a specific spot where I can't take the picture D: ) Then he walks right out as soon as I turn off my camera :ohnoes: He was a good sport though :D

Excellent Ruth. My last sighting at my feeder was Sept. 22 which is really late. They are usually all gone by the 10th. :heart:

Hmmm - wonder if that means we're in for a mild winter :fingerscrossed:

I was thinking the migration had begun as we've got some different ones at the feeders here...good to know I'm not imagining it :laughing:
