Hummingbird Action

Hummingbirds are such cute little critters.

This hummingbird was caught in action while it tried to get its nectar from this pink penstemon plant that was in bloom.

I believe this is an Anna's Hummingbird. Look at those wings flap in record speed.

Penstemons bloom for a limited time once a year.

This is an extraordinary photo. Capturing a humingbird in flight, in the wild (not around a feeder where you know they will gather) is really difficult.

Not an easy one! Wow!

Great capture. His wings are almost invisible they are flapping so fast.

Those hummingbirds are not willing subjects for photographers!

I love them! The ones in my backyard like to buzz my head when I am filling their feeder.

Gorgeous capture. The hummingbird looks so beautiful in it's natural environment. It is showcased by the lovely flower. Hummingbirds beat their wings 40-60 times per second and you capture it wonderfully. Good for you and thanks for sharing.
