Anna's Humming Bird
Christmas Day, I was doing the morning dishes and looked out the back window. I spotted this Anna's Hummingbird resting on our Tree Dahlia. The Tree Dahlia grows to 20 feet in height, and this puts the hummingbird at eye level as viewed from our back window. Anyway, I finished the dishes and got out my 500mm lens and 1.4 teleconverter that I use to photograph the falcons with. I opened the back door and screen door and braced myself against the door opening. And here is the result. A red and green bird for Christmas day.
