The size of your Thumb!
It seems like the smaller the better! These wee birds dance in the air with incredible navigation skills. To capture them in soft light during a light rain, with no flash or any manufactured light is such fun!
The tiny flying ant creeping into the photo actually makes our bird look very large by comparison.
As photographers of nature, we are so fortunate to have such a place to visit. Literally 100's of birds in an area the size of the average back yard. As they blast by me standing with my eye against the camera, I am often clipped by a hummingbird during their battles with each other!
Thanks to all of my guests, as hosting these tour can be a lot of fun, along with all of the hard work. 15 tours now completed, we look forward to another season coming soon.
best wishes, thanks for looking!
