Picture of the Day - 3/10/2011
Buff-Bellied Hummingbird, Hidalgo Pumphouse Reserve, TX - This is the second day of the Summit, so I'm including a photo taken Wednesday of a buff-bellied hummingbird (Amazilia yucataneous), a common species this time of year. It was resting on this branch for quite a while, affording me the chance to manually focus the lens deep into the bush. Settings: ISO 200, 1/40 second at f13, 400mm. This handheld shot was only possible by using an image-stabilized lens.
