HUMMING BIRDS ARE NOT EASY TO HAVE A PHOTO TAKEN – BUT BRYAN BLENKIN MANAGED TO DO IT

I’ve tried many times to take photos of HummingBirds, but failed always. They came close, but in a split second they were flying away. One attempt was in Arizona and another in Mexico City, but I missed them both. These little birds with long, slender bills are native to the Americas.  With about 360 species they occur from Alaska to Tierra del Fuego, but the vast majority of the species are found in the tropics. Many have brightly coloured, glittery feathers. Often the males are more colorful than the females. They’re named for the humming sound made by the  rapid beating of their wings. < From Wikipedia.>
