Please don't be upset I have posted back to back, but I wanted to post this photo.
Last evening I was setting on the porch and thought I would take some photos. The hummers enjoy setting on the welcome sign and do it all the time, I thought I would just snap a few pictures and as I did I notice after I shot and the flash would go off, he would make this funny thing with his beak. I really think I was making him mad, so I stopped. However, I thought this was a cute photo.



I don't understand why my photos look so blurry, when they are so sharp on my computer, is there a better way to post them to keep the sharpness?

It was smart of you to end your photo session if the hummer was getting agitated, I hear they can be very territorial! . Seriously, why get him upset, you did the right thing. I have had hummer that the minute the camera comes out, they disappear. I'd rather enjoy the here and now than not at all.

Is that a black-chinned hummingbird? Is it possible I saw one here in Rhode Island? I had one on my feeder this morning and his/her head and neck looked very dark, similar to that picture.

Jodi you photo is very clear to me and for whatever reason he is clearly not very happy about something but it is a great shot. He might have spotted another male in his territory.

I don't believe it is a black chinned. Depending on how the light is reflecting off their feathers the male Ruby throat head can appear black. The ruby throated is the only one that is generally seen in the eastern part of the country.

Jodi, the image sharpness might have been affected when you edited it. What method did you use to crop/resize the pic? I pulled it into Paint Shop Pro and adjusted the light & contrast, then sharpened it. To my eyes, it's now a clearer image. Would you like me to email it to you?

Lisa** This was a Ruby Throat, it just looks black. That is the only kind we have around here.

Penny** Your right, there was other hummers invading his territory at the time, and they were all fueding too.

Patrick** I would appreciate your email of the photo. I use Photoshop to resize the photos for Photobucket. I must be doing something there that makes them less sharp then what I am seeing on the computer.

Thanks Everyone

What a great picture! I find that hummers take off when they notice the camera pointed at them. I wonder if it looks like a predator to them.
