Did I Just See What I Thought I Just Saw?

"Did I Just See What I Thought I Just Saw?"  Photo by Judy Royal Glenn

I went back to the Botanical Garden yesterday!  I spent a couple hours taking photos of the hummingbirds again.

As I was taking pictures, I thought I saw one stick out his tongue!  Did I just see what I thought I just saw?  I kept my camera focused and took tons of pictures hoping I would catch him doing it again.

Click, click, click....sure enough, he stuck his tongue out again!

This was his favorite place to land, so I made sure I had my camera ready.  He must have landed here a dozen times!

I was excited to get so many shots!  I had a few more but did not want to post them because they were not focused very well.  I again prayed before I went out, and I am thankful He provided so many neat adventures.  I have a few more new stories and photos from this day to post later!!

  9. Ok, I have to admit...I had to look up "hummingbird tongues" to make sure he didn't just have something in his mouth! I had no idea they had tongues that long. Amazing pics!

  17. I use a Pentax K-7 digital SLR. The key is my 80-320 lense! I love it. It lets me zoom in real close. Plus, I knew where the bird was going to land, so I was only 10 feet away. When editing, I also crop so the bird looks larger! Thanks for all the visits!
