On my ETSY site I named this photo.."Escape Velocity".
When a hummingbird senses danger, it escapes at 60 miles per hour! This picture was taken as our dog approached the bird, not realizing I was standing in it's way, it shot directly at me and the camera. Once taken, I ducked!
If you have had experience with hummingbirds, you have seen them sometimes zoom in and hover right in front of you...both of us standing there for a frozen moment in time facing off each other..first one to move...looses! It always stuns me at first, the sound of the wings making me jump at the thought of an approaching bumble bee.
I try to enjoy these creatures as much as I can during these months and miss them so much after the season.
