This is an image I captured at the Riparian Preserve at Gilbert Water Ranch earlier this month. I followed this Anna’s Hummingbird for about 30 minutes as it flitted between 3 perches. He eventually settled on these flowers long enough for me to get 5 shots off. This behaviour seems typical of these birds, and once I can identify the perches a bird uses I can set up my gear to my best advantage and simply wait for him to come to me.
