Photographing hummingbirds is difficult. I can attest to it!
Hummingbirds like my porch. Fairly regularly they fly in and have to
be caught – usually with a strainer and a large piece of cardboard to cover it.
My wall calendar also works. Here is a photo of the hummingbird that flew in
this weekend. After getting over the shock of his capture he did fly away.
But I don’t think this is his best angle. For some great photos of
hummingbirds check out The Complete Book of Hummingbirds
by Tony Tilford published by Thunder Bay Books and distributed by
Raincoast. It’s full of spectacular photos of “jewels in flight!”
