P52 34/52 Rufous Hummingbird-Female

This is my first photograph and sighting of a Rufous Hummingbird! I’m still so excited about seeing this little Hummer. So, I’ve posted this image instead of a macro for this week’s Project 52 image.

P52 34 of 52  Rufous Hummingbird-Female

Instead of carrying my long lens I decided to take my Lumix FZ200 to use if any wildlife or birds came along. I’m sort of getting the hang of this Bridge Camera. I just need to use it more. I’m planning to take it on He-Man’s Birthday Cruise which is just around the corner! It will be easier packing, carrying it around, and I won’t need a tripod.

  1. very nice shot, Deb! I thought it was a bit odd that the Rufouses are still here in Vancouver … and I woke up this morning to find TWO of them chasing each other around in the backyard! they are now here 11 days longer than they were last year! 🙂

      1. oh I did … but not up close yet! I think these two may have been hatched up here. unfortunately, the resident Anna’s male came in and gave both the boot a few minutes ago! 🙂
