they've been visiting lots lately during the overcast and showery days, feeding on these Salvias
I know to those of you who never see this bird, that they look a little bit quirky :)
...ooops, wishing I could've mastered this take-off. If I rev' up the shutter on my camera then I can't see through the viewfinder ... well it's not a dslr, but a bridge-camera. It stands to reason I guess that there are limitations. Even if I had those setting ranges in my favour I still have to fit all the bird in the viewfinder. I so admire those crisp, in-flight photographers who get it right!
