Hummingbird view and perfect mating grounds!
Part II of my weekend brought me to my friend’s home for a wonderful visit and an enjoyable view of his own little paradise of birds. In particular, you are looking at photos of the Anna and Rufous Hummingbirds. These shots I took were NOT easy. A research study found that the Anna’s hummingbird can shake their bodies 55 times per second while in flight. Can you imagine I was able to even get a picture at all? In fact the Rufous hummingbird is known for their incredible flight skills!!! I would say so, but I was blessed to get a few shots to turn out. Enjoy. These were taken in a town called Silverdale, WA with the backdrop of Olympic Mountains and an inlet that has waters coming from the Puget Sound.
