Fuchsia, Hummingbird & Gazing Ball, 2007


Fuchsia, Hummingbird & Gazing Ball, 2007 (fuchsia perennial)

hummingbird and reflection in gazing ball/mirror ball, with perennial fuchsias on our front patio. Captured from open front window with telephoto lens. Think the fuchsias have been winter killed over the past winter, no sign of life yet in them. This photo was featured in Photo of the Day on one photo website :)

Hi Tina2 and Michaella, thankyou both, was surprised how soon you had commented. happy you like it :) Can't wait til the hummers start "fighting" their reflections in the gazing ball again, - but not sure if they will this year, if the fuchsia doesn't come back to life, as I think it's the fuchsia that attracts them in the first place, then, being very territorial little devils, they try to fight off their reflection, thinking it's a rival hummingbird, LOL.

again, many thanks Janette and Mageth. I can't get over all the encouraging comments from members of this group, much appreciated. On some photo groups that I send pics in to, most of the time, nobody ever comments on them!

know what you mean, Mageth. Am finding this quite time consuming already :) but lots of fun. Trouble is, it's time to be gardening now.

Thankyou, Skippy, am happy you like it.

Hi Tasteya. thankyou. So far I have sold 2 hummer photos to one person in California. Plus prior to that, an Internet Security company in UK licensed one of the hummer photos from me, to use on an invitation to their customers, - to a meeting at Canary Wharf in London. That was quite exciting, altho initially I had no idea what to do, and was very scared incase I messed up somehow, sending the image to them by email :)

The internet security man was very nice, and offered to let me see the final product (invitation) - I expected to receive a couple of postcards. Well, a lovely surprise happened. As it turned out, on my birthday - a package arrived and here were about 50 of the prints! So I was able to include them with our Xmas cards that year. I thought that was so nice of that man.
Of course, he had no idea it was my birthday, just a coincidence, a lovely one.
