Humming Bird

By lianna  
Good morning all

Suffering with jet lag as i got home early yesterday morning.... supposed to be up for work soon but cannot sleep!! typical!

So here is a shot from my travels. I have never seen a humming bird before, and made the embarassing mistake of asking what the big bug was..... Sad lol, i must say it amused me too!

This was taken hand held, i did not take a tri pod with me, but i am pleased with the result!!

it was amazing listening to them and they were quite happy to buzz around my head!!!

hope you like it too!?!

Hope everyone is well x x x
