We spent the afternoon yesterday wandering around the
Seaside Gardens in Carpinteria. It is the best place to get
hummer photos, there are enough flowers there to support a
bunch of them in a much smaller area than they would normally
be comfortable with. This guy was one of my favorite subjects.
He had about four or five favorite perches. I followed him from one to the
next getting a little closer on each circuit. I started taking photos
when I was still far away from him so he would get used to the
sound of the shutter. After about five or six trips around his
space he got comfortable enough for me to get this shot. I have no
idea how long it took seemed like only a few minutes, but there were
hundreds of images when I was done.
