About to Land
We have enjoyed having a hummingbird feeder right outside the window to our home office. There are quite a few visitors to the feeder during the day and some of them fly right up to the windows and take a good long look at us working. I have found that taking photos of flying hummingbirds is rather a challenge. So far, I have used my 300 mm lens. I am going to have to go outside with my 500 mm lens and a tripod before the weather changes and the birds start to leave for the winter. This is likely a female, Black-chinned Hummingbirg or Archilochus alexandri.
