Recently I purchased a new lens for my camera - one that "zooms" a bit.
I also decided that if I want better bird photo's then I need to start using my tripod more often.
I was pleased with the first few photo's which were taken through my office window - which has a lot of mineral deposits on it from our sprinkler system. So I decided to head outside.
There were two Mourning Doves and one was just starting to close his eyes. Kinda weird huh?
I had no idea that their eyelids didn't close straight down but kind of towards their back.
But then......this happened......
I felt like I was watching the first episode of The Incredible Hulk......
This is a male Anna's Hummingbird that changed right before my eyes.
And it wasn't just the direction that the sunlight hit him - at least I don't think it was - or was it?
Well.......Hello there you pretty little thing.....
What a charming beauty!
