[photos] Mama hummingbird on her nest

A female hummingbird on her nest in the old apple tree hanging over the back fence is darned hard to spot. She's gray, the tree is gray, her nest is built of spiderwebs and lichens, and it is gray.

To complicate matters, I have a lot to learn about this 300 mm lens, but here's what I got this afternoon when I tried to shoot the hummingbird on her nest in the backyard.

She's sitting tight

She flew off backwards just as I snapped this

A slightly different angle

Again, a different angle

As usual, more at the Flickr set.
