A Mist of Rainbow Dyes

A flash of harmless lightning,
A mist of rainbow dyes,
The burnished sunbeams brightening
From flower to flower he flies.

I don't think I'll ever be a bird photographer.  But I sure love trying.  :)

I hope you enjoy my feeble attempts at capturing this quick-darting creature.  My camera's auto-focus refused to do so, even when this little guy (and gal) were hovering.  So I tried to get creative, and these are my attempts.

Below is the female, with this first image showing her tongue; can you see it?

  1. Wow those are great. You did a great job.

  2. You got some great shots! I was at a friends the other day and their were hummingbirds, but they were hiding too much for the camera. I was so sad...
