Return of the Hummer

[Hummingbird]
Details: 1/160 sec at f/7.1, 100 ISO, 200mm focal length (35mm equiv.)

It's been about 3 weeks since I posted a photo of one of those hummingbirds that I took when I was visiting my grandmother. I thought I'd exhausted my supply of "good" shots but then I found this one. I kinda like him.

Another photo from my trip to NM. I took this on the trip back. We were probably about half-way between Albuquerque and El Paso.

Magdalena Sky

[Magdalena Sky]
Details: 1/100 sec at f/4.5, 64 ISO, 45mm focal length (35mm equiv.)

I kept missing getting a decent sunset shot when I was visiting my grandmother. So, the last evening I was there, we drove up toward Kelly to try and get a shot without any power lines in it. But, the clouds were too much for the sun. So, no sunset. But, the sky was awfully pretty anyway. Doncha think?

Red Highlights

Yet another photo of a bird:

[male house finch]
Details: 1/200 sec at f/3.5, 100 ISO, 200mm focal length (35mm equiv.)

Remember the house finch photo I took at my grandmother's house? I do believe this one may be the male partner. Or...a male pal, at any rate. He was sitting in the little evergreen tree next to the bird feeders at my grandma's house. And, he's about to become the object of the next postcard "winging" its way to my grandma via the USPS.

Prickly & Pretty

A postcard:

[Prickly & Pretty]
Details: 1/100 sec at f/7.1, 100 ISO, 200mm focal length (35mm equiv.)

I took this photo at my grandmother's house back in July. And, then I turned it into a postcard and sent it to her. I love doing that sort of thing.
