Bird in Tree

I was killing time on my cousin’s porch taking humming bird pics. Instead of hovering as the fed, they just sat there. I was underwhelmed. Then they would dart over to this Japanese maple and then I had something.

noo this is beautiful, love the DOF and mine don't hover as they feed either but are used to me siting there, this is shot as she was coming into land :)

Very, very pretty! Yes, they will sometimes sit and rest like this, and it's understandable as they're constantly moving and using up a lot of energy. How do you like the 80-400mm lens?

By the way, thanks so much for your nice comment on my site. :)
