Hummingbirds + Some More Nature Shots
Lens: DA* 50-135 Camera: K20d 
Posted By: Julie, 07-27-2012, 09:31 AM

Here are some hummingbird shots from a few days ago.
Every year I would complain that they would never sit still and let me take pictures of them, but this year, it is totally different- they just sit there. I haven't been able to get even one shot of them in flight! So sorry if the pictures are a little boring.

They were taken with the K20d + DA* 50-135 and cropped quite heavily.

And here's two more nature-y photos:

Hope you enjoy!
Constructive criticism is always welcome.

I have that same exact hummingbird feeder. Yet somehow, my photos don't look like that...

Nice shots of the hummingbirds. I've missed them here this year. I've only seen a couple and was not able to get a shot either time.

Nice sharp shots of the little guys. You do realize that now that they posed for you, they will never stay still again? That rose is really stunning. Good job.
