We visited the Hassayampa River Preserve near Wickenberg, Arizona today, one of our favorite spots to enjoy a lush oasis in the desert. Its a great place to enjoy Hummingbirds as they visit the many flowering plants and the dedicated feeders provided by the preserve.
These small and very fast birds love to dart around but will at times give you the opportunity to capture images of them as they feed. When they are out in front of the plant the job is a bit easier, but when they stay behind the plant capturing them is difficult but doable if you’re patient and your camera can focus precisely and fast. Just be persistent and practice, practice and practice until you get it.
