I have never noticed hummingbirds along the Stevens Creek trail. But, after I first spotted them earlier this month, I cannot help seeing them in the same location. I cannot tell whether this is the same hummingbird or different ones. Even from photo to photo, the colors of the hummingbird differs. Sometimes, the glint of violet shows and sometimes it does not. So, I have photographed an Anna’s Hummingbird with a 70-200mm lens and 24-70mm lens.
This time, I had the all-purpose 28-300mm lens with me.
Nikon D800, AF-S Nikkor 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR, ISO 400, 300mm, -1 EV, f/8, 1/1,000s
This is the same hummingbird. See how the violet eye shadow appears in this photo, but not in the one above, which was taken a few seconds later?
