The case of the disappearing photos.
It used to happen from time to time - now it's happening a lot more often. After posting my photos in here which I have hosted for years on Fotki dot com, the urls change causing my blog to have many blank placeholders.
This is not meant to be a rant - just letting people know why there are so many missing photos.
Unfortunately, I can't take the time to keep fixing the links.
Enjoy what's left. Thank you.

An "ehh...ok" shot of a hummingbird

I was watching her, and I thought she was watching me. What she was actually doing was guarding "her" flowers. Every time another hummingbird came to the flowers, thinking they were going to have a treat, and me thinking I was going to get a good photo, she would divebomb the intruder and they'd both fly off together. Then she would return a few minutes later until it happened again. Fun to watch but frustrating to photograph. lol

Great Pic anyway!

Did you consider video?

Yes, I think video of them chasing each other would be awesome. My EOS 50D however, doesn't have a video feature. Maybe I'll bring another camera out there. I did make a video of hummingbirds a few years ago if you're interested in seeing it:

it's actually a really good photo. and the green, leafy background and the tangle of branches enhances the look of the photo.
