I switched to petunias to try catching hummingbirds pics. They don’t visit them as often as the other flowers I have, but I think they make for a better photo. This shot is pretty close to what I’ve been trying to catch, so I feel its my best humming bird shot so far. The season is slowing down as they start migrating out of the mountains. I haven’t seen too many males lately, I guess they are the first to leave.
