Yesterday was excellent.

I left the house, and went up the hill. I took a look over the valley, then, out headed out middlegate…

…and emerged at the cottonwoods. I meandered across some lesser trails, across the 'moonscape area' and,then, back to the top of the chutes for sunset.

Feels good to move, again.

OT: Costa's Hummingbird Calypte costa in the wind from this week…

amazing hummer shot. what length lens did you use and how far away were you?
'Cold Hummer' was shot using a 300 MM + 1.4 extender, from four-five feet of distance. Makes an incredible large-format print, as does this hummer shot.

'Puffed & Fluffed Hummer' Broad-billed Hummingbird Cyanthus latirostrus, shot under same conditions, with same equipment. I was working on a real close look utilizing a shallow depth of field. I had the shutter speed pretty high, as it was the 'real windy' day last week and I wanted to freeze their feathers in different, non-standard looks. Note that you can't even see the Broad-billed's feet, he was so cold!
