I was sitting on the deck one evening and out of the corner of my eye, I caught a green flash…it was a hummingbird!! This was the first time (for me) seeing a hummingbird in Alberta! I ran inside and grabbed my camera hoping it would came back. I sat down to wait…and missed opportunity #2 as it came buzzing in and out…gone before I even stood up. I was going to be prepared for the next time…so I stood, had my camera focused and was ready… and lucky for me…third time’s a charm! Amazing to watch…so fast…so tiny…and that iridescent green flashing in the evening sun …wow!
