A very hot day in July

by H.Kathy Hollick

Having just graduated to the Cannon Rebel T3 camera I was anxious to capture some quality photos of the hummingbirds that frequent our yard and feeders.

We feed the Anna's Hummingbirds year round as we are in the Pacific Northwest, Washington State, just below Canada about 4 miles.

Quite often when I am outside with the camera I will call for them by making clicking sounds and when they click back I can tell which area of the yard they are resting.

On this particular day a female Anna's was in the long needled pine tree and was quite high up.

I stood almost directly beneath her and began to click away just as she was fanning her tail and striking various poses, as if she were posing and understood exactly what I was after. That perfect picture!

I could not be happier with the images that I captured that day and continue to capture of these wonderful creatures that I feel so blessed to experience.

I felt your joy from taking the Anna photographs!
Enjoyed seeing them!

We have the ruby red throat and they say now we sometimes will have a Rufus nesting in our area
for the first time.
