Backyard Humming Bird
Lens: Pentax FA*300mm 4.5 Camera: K-3 Photo Location: Houston TX ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: 1/160s Aperture: F4.5 
Posted By: Artesian, 02-04-2018, 10:23 AM

Jim was an internet friend that I had known since DPreview days. I had joined in 2005. One of the nicest guys you would want to meet. A true Texan through and through. He is missed by many. We both shot the majority of our photos in our back yards. This is one of the shots I took that jim liked.

I had set up my Humming Bird feeder in Sept. last year when the Hummers were flying south. We had a great Native Texas Lantanna bush in the backyard that attracted Ruby-throated Hummers next to the feeder. They would feed on the feeder and then on the Lantanna. The photos I took were all handheld This is one of the better shots I took that day.

Lovely photo and sentiments. Rupert/Jim surely has left a void in so many lives, not least in those of his backyard critters.
