You Capture - My best shot

Time for another You Capture post hosted by I should be folding laundry.  This weeks theme, to share ONE of your best shots from the week.

Yesterday while I was cleaning up the house the birds outside were going crazy singing to each other and flying around the yard.

As I looked out the window to see who was doing all the chirping I saw the most beautiful bird I have ever seen in our neck of the woods.

It was a neon yellow in color and I suspect it was an escapee from someones house or a pet store.  Unfortunately the minute I stepped outside with my camera in hand it took off like a rocket.

Instead of the neon yellow bird I was buzzed by these two hummingbirds do a little sky dance.

I honestly can't believe I was able to capture this moment.  It would have looked a lot less distracting if the tree wasn't in the back ground, but hey........it is pretty darn cool to capture two hummingbirds looking like they are about to kiss.

Beautiful shot!

Sabrina said...

This is fabulous!

Kathy said...

Well, you knocked the ball out of the park with this one. But I'd venture to say they were more like fighting than kissing! Male hummingbirds are VERY territorial and I would guess these are males because of their color. Most people never get a pic of one hummingbird and you managed to get two in one shot! Pretty amazing.

Amie said...

Wow that is amazing! What luck that you were able to grab your camera quickly enough!
We both had kisses in our You Capture's hahaha
