POTD: Hummer #4

Hummer #4
Oro Valley, Arizona

I put this image in this collection mainly to show that it is in fact possible to photograph hummingbirds “in the wild” rather than at a feeder. Granted, they’re typically further away–this one was in a tree about 30′ away–so it takes a long telephoto plus a generous amount of cropping to get it done. But it’s doable, thanks in larger part to the current availability of some really good camera sensors as well as software for processing.
