My parents have a hummingbird feeder on their deck.
Which provided me a great opportunity to play with my camera a bit. Tomorrow I'm going to work on getting some wings without blurring, but it'll have to be very bright out to allow me to use that fast a shutter speed.
I had to be very patient to get these shots because there are 3 hummingbirds nearby and they're so territorial that whenever one would fly near the feeder, at least one of the others would swoop over to drive off the one that wanted a drink. It was only once in a while that one of the hummingbirds made it to the feeder without being noticed by the others.
They'd be a lot less hungry if they'd just cooperate but I guess that's not how hummingbirds are built.
At least this one is willing to share his food with some ants though I suspect the bird isn't aware that it's sharing.
Speaking of sharing, I took a bunch of pictures of a waterfall today but the chip I used wouldn't work with my parent's computer and so I have to wait until I get home to see the pics.
The computer is pretty old and I suspect the card is too big. It's a 4GB one. So now I'm using a 2GB card in the camera and the computer is quite happy with that one.
