August 23rd, 2013 – Avian Friday: Garden Variety

Summer and Hummingbird season go hand-in-hand here in the Pacific Northwest so this weeks bird is another Annas from a favorite garden hangout. These guys are always a challenge to capture which also adds to the thrill of photographing them. Lately the goal has been not only to catch them in flight, but also to frame them in a pleasant floral composition.
