Broadtail hummingbird photographed last year at the Hummingbird Aviary in the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum near Tucson, Arizona. To be in an enclosure with so many hummingbirds was a one of the major highlights of our trip and we hope to return there soon.
Incredible photo and pose! Thank you for sharing!

niiice shot Theo! What lens is this? Also were you using a tripod? Cause this sharp shot with a handheld 300mm lens at 1/99th of a sec shutter speed is fantastic!
Thank you... it was a lucky handheld shot!!! We just came back from Yellowstone [arrived about 30 minutes ago] where I rented a 50-500mm telephoto... haven't seen the photos yet but had to handhold in some wildlife encounters... I hope they come out 1/2 as well. Hope to see you out on the ice in a few months my friend!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Aaahhh I cant wait for the ice to return! How'd you like the Bigma?
The ice is next on our list!!! By Bigma I assume you are referring to the lens which was an amazing piece of equipment that I wish I could afford to own... It was SWEET!!!!
yeah they call the Sigma 50-500 the "Bigma" hahaha. Glad you had fun!
Thanks... I had rented the Canon 100-400 the previous year and found the Sigma 50-500 to be easier to use... much better balance, easier to focus, good results hand held [even to 1/25 of a second on a few occasions], easier to carry [either lighter or better weight distribution?]... in any case I much prefer it to the Canon!!!
Wow what a stunning hummingbird shot! It is very colorful and detailed.
