Master of Time by Laur720 Master of Time by Laur720
I think hummingbirds freeze time. everything else slows around them while they seem seconds ahead. when they stop flying and hoover it is like slow motion around them.

Thank you. It was the first time I got as close to my hummingbirds as I did with a picture of this quality. I love this shot since it is one of the best I have of them and most memorable moments. he hoovered right in front of me and I took his shot. I don't have many like it but I can't wait for spring when they return.

Thank you very much for that compliment, it was all timing :) waited so long to get this kind of picture. My hummingbirds come regularly but getting close enough and the shot, and pose of him it was really all a perfect moment.

I am sure you will have some enviable moments too :). just the matter of timing and getting a camera to capture them.

And I really hope so(:

they can be tricky, my best advice which I learned the hard way is patience and staying as still as you can if you are near them.

I think so :) as long as you keep your eyes peeled never know what shots youll get.

that is good :) I missed a sunset today, wish I had my camera on me it was amazing since it was soo hot today, but you never know what you might see :). its just timing and luck and kind of knowing what you can get.

I had been trying for the hummingbird for a long time, but if you can anticipate a shot it helps :) but somethings you can't predict.

I am no expert but I am happy if I can help at all.

Aww): I hate when that happens. Yeah, the very few times I forget my camera when I go places, there's like, some majestic bird, or a lovely little pond, or a beautiful skyline, or something that would make an awesome picture, but then I don't have my camera!!!
