The nature of things in our backyard. We moved in mid-August to a house in Hopkins, and for the first few weeks I set up a camera near our bird feeder to greet the birds of the neighborhood. We have been enjoying the cardinals, chickadees, nuthatches, sparrows and bluejays. We also have a chipmunk that we call Pig because he or she likes to fill his or her mouth until capacity at every chance.
One of the highlights was capturing an image of a hummingbird in flight. I was watching the feeder when a hummingbird zoomed in and flew right into the frame for a second. Fortunately, I was ready with a cable release and a high speed shutter. Fun!
