Leaving Home

The first photograph captures an immature Blacked-chinned Humming Bird taking flight from its nest for the first time never to return. After I took the photo, I looked down at the LCD screen on my camera to see the image. Seconds later when I looked back at the nest there was only one Hummer remaining (photo #2). I then spotted the first Hummer perched on a limb in an adjoining tree (photo#3). I continued to monitor and photograph the nest only to find an empty nest several days later (photo#4). “Right Place at the Right Time”

I call the first photo “Leaving Home”; the second photo “Home Alone”; the third photo “My First Perch” and the fourth photo “The Empty Nest”. These Photos were taken in the Riverside RV Park located in Ruidoso, NM
