On it's final glide path...I captured another hummingbird this week while it was approaching the feeder.
It came in from the right so fast that I missed it at first...and then came to an abrupt halt right at the feeder. It's wings in the picture tell me that it was reversing it's forward motion at the point of capture.
I posted another humming bird last week and they both have these bizarre green lines in the background. Even though I didn't plan the background...I like the effect..almost adds an Asian touch to the image. When you take pictures with long telephotos...often the background can become distorted or out of focus as it has in these two photos. The background lines are actually a green webbed fence just behind them. When separated from the background grass etc...the fence becomes an interesting part of the portrait of a hummingbird.
