Allen Hummingbird

It was incredibly fun trying to photograph these hummingbirds the other day. While it was fun it was also a bit frustrating. Frustrating more in the sense that to truly do birds, wildlife, landscape and so on you need really expensive lenses to get the tack sharp images you see in the magazines.

Don't get me wrong...I like how these images turned out and I've gotten past the point of caring how my images compare to others. What I lack in expensive gear I make up in pushing what I have to give me the best possible image. My gear limitations have also helped me discover my enjoyment of experimenting with abstracts and blurs. Which has really become my favorite style of photography.
