1. This looks like a juvenile, don’t you think? Lovely photo.

      Yes, I do believe that it is an immature bird.

  2. It’s a shame we don’t have hummingbirds like this on the east coast. Beautiful shot of a gorgeous bird.

  3. Talain,
    Do you use a telephoto lens to get these great shots? What do you use?

      Hello Cathy, currently I’m using two Canon lenses for all of my images. The EFS 18-55mm with image stabilizer and the Canon 75-300mm that I use for all of my birding shots. So I still have to be relatively close to my subject to get the feathers’ details. Just your basic starter lenses, I hope to upgrade some day. Thank you Cathy for all of your visits, Michael 🙂

      • Thanks, Michael. I have a Nikon 85-300 lens, but you’re right. Even with that, I have to be close to my subjects. And hummingbirds are tough!
