I've been fascinated with hummingbirds since I moved to Kenmore, WA some years ago, but only began photographing them seriously last year.  As a photographic subject they are tricky because of their amazing speed and rather unpredictable movements, but I enjoy the challenge of capturing their singular beauty in what I hope are unique ways.   The hummers in my yard are used to me changing things up on them all the time and have become quite tame.  As long as their sugar remains filled they don't seem to mind props and lights along-side them in the frame!
