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.

More to come…



  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! 🙂

    • Thank you Hui! How wonderful! You may have a chance to photograph them still before they leave for a warmer weather.

      • 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! 🙂

  2. Beautiful photograph :-). Great angle and clarity! Oo, first sightings are so exciting! I love it when they fly near my ears. The sound of their super-fast wings is so delightful.

    • Me too! I love it when they zoom right in front of me and watch me for a moment or two when I’m taking my 10 minute sun bath each day.

  3. Beautiful shot of a lovely bird and congratulations on your first sighting!!

  4. What a beauty! I think Hummingbirds are my favorite bird! 💜

  5. Wow! What a wonderful photo! You captured the bird perfectly! 😀

  6. Really cool and pretty picture! 🙂

  7. awesome shot!
