Anna’s hummingbird

The red-hot pokers are in full bloom and are magnets for hummingbirds in our area.

I’ve been spending time sitting near a patch of pokers, becoming “part of the landscape” so to speak. It didn’t take long before the hummingbirds would fearlessly feed within a meter (3 feet) of me. That’s a good thing, because the longest lens I have for my camera is a 90mm.

    Wow, this is great – so sharp. I’ve been thinking of doing the same thing, I have them coming to the French geraniums on my deck. And I have a 1200mm lens so that should do the trick, huh? : )
