On the fence... by kayaksailor On the fence... by kayaksailor
A young male Anna's hummingbird kept an eye on me while I photographed the gathering dusk...the clouds made the light a really different color

How did you you keep it so sharp? The shutter speed in the exif dat seems very slow.

I was on a mono-pod and sitting down which helped, but mostly it was luck that the hummer was watching something else and wasn't moving either...a couple other shots I took have ghost heads :laughing:
