Hummingbirds

This one I took a while back, nearly six years ago, with my first Digital Camera (which was already a few years old by then) a Canon PowerShot G2.  Great camera – I could even be tempted back to the series with the new G1 X, but it isn’t as small as some of the other new contenders in the advanced compact ranges, like the Olympus XZ-1 which looks a very nice camera.  Anyway, on to the photo – one of those pictures you hope to get but can’t really plan for – two hummingbirds in one frame keeping still for just long enough to capture them.  I’ve tried many more times around the pond since then – with much newer and more capable (but probably no more expensive) cameras – and still failed to come up with one better than this.  Hate the background being too busy – but it is what it is…
