3 feeders, 6 hummingbirds and an overcast day. Sounds like a good recipe for hummingbird shots. Although nature does not always play ball. From time to time the sun came out, and here in south-east Texas that means oven time.

One thing I can’t do with so many hummers is to follow them with my lens. I never would get a shot, yeah I would, but an empty one. Which happens a lot in hummer photography. I therefore concentrated on a small spot next to the feeder and waited until a hummer showed up. Another thing I can’t do is relax and lean back in my chair. I had to stay focused all the time, and this is quite exhausting. But I managed.
