Sonoran Desert Museum

Attended a humming-bird walk. Only 4 people nice! They have them before the museum opens in the humming-bird aviary. I admit I missed much of the talk as I was shooting photos and enthralled.  The woman opened up a jar of tiny fruit flies, could barely see them. The hummers went nuts and we were immediately surrounded by hummers going after the flies. Much fun! The birds of course are very used to people and cameras. My problem, well one of my problems!, was that they faced me so I was not getting their long bills.  I will start with a couple of males and will post more in the days to come.  The red is an Anna’s, and the purple blue is a Costa.  Tricky shooting! I need more time! More practice! More in focus! Focus was difficult.
