Bird on a a Wire

I hope you won’t mind all of my postings of Hummingbirds, it is so fascinating to watch them fly in and out.

Per Wikipedia…..“They are known as hummingbirds because of the humming sound created by their beating wings which flap at high frequencies audible to humans. They hover in mid-air at rapid wing-flapping rates, which vary from around 12 beats per second in the largest species, to in excess of 80 in some of the smallest. Of those species that have been measured in wind tunnels, their top speed exceeds 15 m/s (54 km/h; 34 mph) and some species can dive at speeds in excess of 22 m/s (79 km/h; 49 mph).

I noticed while watching this particular hummingbird that the red on his neck changes to black depending on how the light hits it or the way he moves his head.

I still have to figure out the best settings to get sharp images.

What Lurks in Nature

While walking in my yard taking pictures of flowers I noticed something moving on a tree. It was some sort of insect and some had wings. There were thousands of them lined up all around the tree marching towards the top.

Does anyone know what they are?

When I saw the snail I thought that the bugs were going to swarm it and have a nice dinner. But to my surprise they just moved around it as if they were just checking it out then they started marching towards the top again.

A Photo of the Week Challenge:

This view is one of my favorites. It was taken August 14, 2014 while on vacation in Outer Bank, NC.

My father and I would get up about 5:30am every morning (this is the only time I get up that early) to watch the sunrise.

On that lucky day I was able to catch this shot.
