A Little Me Time

BetterPhoto.com Editor's Pick   A Little "Me" Time
A Little "Me" Time
A local hummingbird taking a break from her nest. Females generally sit on the nest for 55 minutes of each daytime hour, using the other 5 minutes to feed, preen and stretch. I got better results using my 200mm than my 70-300, even though it required me to crop the images quite a bit.

At 200mm you had to be pretty close to get this incredible shot Martha, I can never get close to birds no matter how hard I try, the detail, color, pose and light are all excellent Martha!!

Thanks for the great comments, everyone! In response to John K -- I was close but as close as it seems; this is cropped. I amended my description accordingly.
