The creative act lasts but a brief moment, a lightning instant of give-and-take, just long enough for you to level the camera and to trap the fleeting prey in your little box.

Photo #348 x 4

Our friend Dave took these photos a few days ago-here's what he had to say:
"This little guy flew into a window while being chased by another Anna's hummingbird. He was stunned. and I was worried that his wing was broken, as it was askew when I picked it up. But after about five minutes of holding it, he recovered and zoomed away when a rival hummingbird went on the attack again."
--Dave

Thanks Dave for sharing these great photos!

That's something you sure don't see often. A type of Hummingbird I'm not familiar with.

Fab photos. I once held a little sparrow after it had been stunned by a golf ball - I thought the little thing would die but sure wnough about 5 minutes later it flew off seemingly none the wrost for its experience.
