In July 2015, I got the chance to photograph a Black Chinned Hummingbird, who also had a nest attached to a limb on a tree. I had gone on a walk at a local park and took a dirt trail through a small forested area, where I heard a buzzing noise. I looked around, but at first didn’t see anything, yet I kept hearing the buzzing. Finally, I saw the Hummingbird dart past me and perch onto a limb. I stayed nearby for about an hour, photographing it as it darted and perched. At one point, the Hummingbird had perched on a limb, where the light hit it just right, creating catch light in its eye and a chance for a sharp image.
I recently went on a drive to Antelope Island, located at the Great Salt Lake. It had been quite a long time since I had visited or much less seen a sunset(which are pretty amazing out there). I spent about 3 hours looking for birds and decided to stay till sundown. I’m really glad I stayed because the sunset that evening was really pretty.
Here’s a landscape version of the sunset:
Here’s another image of a Juvenile Burrowing Owl from 2015. Photographed at sunset, as it flew on the plant(Mullein) and tried to catch its balance. I like how the wings are extended, revealing the detail on the underside of the wing.
I’ve probably over-shared on Owl images recently; as they’re what I have in the archive and most recently photographed. I haven’t really been out lately to find wildlife, but hoping to change that soon. Thanks for looking!
