Humming Birds

Well Aware of Me

    I was in Michigan this past weekend and my brother has a couple of well-frequented feeders. Unfortunately it was a both a social event and very cold outside so I didn’t get any pictures. I did get some of Catbirds, Cardinals and various Finches but they didn’t come out very well as I shot through a screen. I tried to photograph a hummingbird but just when I had one in the viewfinder someone would wander on to the porch and scare them away. Oh, well. Next time.

    Hi Z, Isn’t that the way it goes. Some days, I can shoot so many photos that don’t quite come out. I think a big part of my problem is my eyes. I have two pair of glasses I use. One for the computer and the other for normal wear. The pair for normal wear are trifocals, the computer glasses are not. With the trifocals I sometimes don’t get my eye quite where it should be. Like you say Oh Well, maybe next time. I really think that is the key, patience to keep trying to get that one good picture.

    I just leave the camera on “Auto” and let the focus go automatic. The problem is that sometimes, when shooting through a screen, the screen is in focus and the bird isn’t. I may be going back this coming weekend and since there won’t be a dozen or so people around I might get a good shot.
