Camera Critters #202

Lucky for me, I have a lot of critter photos I haven’t used here yet, so when the weather is bad and I can’t shoot, or my lens is being repaired, I have something I can use.

The day after I arrived in San Antonio, I was on my brother’s deck enjoying a cup of coffee.  At some point, I noticed a hummingbird land in a tree on the other side of the deck.  I lifted my camera and before I could get the little critter in the frame, it disappeared. 

I lowered the camera, glanced around and in a tree right near where I was sitting, the bird landed on the perfect branch for a photo.

This Black-chinned Hummingbird wasn’t the first one I had seen (they are found in my area), but it was the best look I have ever had of one.

Misty Dawn’s Camera Critter Meme is a great way see critters the world over. Go to the homepage here to see more. Then join the fun and add your own.

Nice pic, interesting how the beak of the bird and the thorn on the tree are similar.

Super...I have several feeders for them around in my neck of the woods here in Coastal Texas ---which reminds me, I need to get them down and cleaned out; they'll be returning in full force by the beginning of March in our yard.

I love watching them.


Excellent image.

Nice photo. I'm glad the hummingbird was still long enough to get this shot.

Hummingbirds are so beautiful and fun! This is a great photo. Can't wait to see your photos when you get your lens back from repair :-)
