Trying to Catch the Nesting Fluff with Her Tongue by jgpittenger

Trying to Catch the Nesting Fluff with Her Tongue

If you look carefully, you will see her tongue is out trying to catch the fluff that she dropped! I was so happy you liked yesterday's post and hope you don't get sick of my hummers. They make me smile...an important thing these days! This shot is also from yesterday but I just got back from capturing 576 more hummer shots! Yikes. The red bokeh is a car's brake light.
Thanks for your visits, comments, suggestions, favs
What a fabulous capture Jane!

@kschroed LOL. I set a really high shutter speed, use continuous autofocus, and high speed repeated shots and hold down the shutter when she’s there and then delete, delete, and delete! It’s really fun to go through the shots because I get to see all the changes in position she makes in fractions of seconds

@kschroed oh, and then I go through them looking for any that have her doing unusual things...like this one

Just a great shot. Fav. I use a similar method but seldom with such dramatic results. Love how you've caught her with the thistle in her beak. And the way that the background goes to blur. That's another side benefit of the fast shutter speed.

@mbrutus it’s not a thistle it is her tongue
