First hummer of the season

First hummer of the season, a photo by skip22037 on Flickr.

He finally found our feeder! The light was poor on this misty morning, but I cranked up the ISO to about 500 so I could post this picture of the first hummer. Not the greatest shot, of course, but it marks the moment for future reference.

Here are a couple of pictures of the blue jay that also visited the feeder today. Same low light and high ISO, but I was happy to capture his activity at the feeder. This jay has been a frequent “guest” at our bird bistro in recent weeks, and he even hangs around long enough for photo opps. Click on a picture to open the gallery.

Thanks for looking!
