Sunbird/Hummingbird in the Philippines

By on October 23, 2021

The stay at home orders due to pandemic gave me the opportunity to reconnect with nature and wildlife. I began seeing species of birds that I’ve never seen before. This month, I began to notice the presence of hummingbirds around, with rain on and off, sometimes, showers are much more scattered, I was surprised to see them eating blossoms and performed the backward upside down position and hovered overhead.

Just like other pollinators which is fairly the same way as the bees and butterflies, hummingbirds are also nectar lovers. I’m blessed that our backyard is a natural habitat for birds and other pollinators, full of all sorts.

Hummingbirds are incredibly cute! They are the only birds that can fly forward and backward that no other birds can fly like hummingbirds.

When circumstances calls for photography, I don’t want to miss this opportunity to get at least few good shots, the most natural look as possible. It’s a big effort to wait for the right timing and prefocus my camera on branch where I expect the hummingbird to land but by observing the birds, I can easily get a good idea on how and where to position myself and to wait for the birds to change position to get a natural look.

Hummingbirds moves so fast, fairly not approachable, can’t normally get close to capture. Any slightest movement may cause this bird to scurry away, a few times it flew from the branch a short distance away but it always returned even when I stood nearby. I meant no harm attempting to photograph, soon , the bird seemed to get used to my presence.

These flowers are reliable food source for the birds. I just hope these hummingbirds will come back for more beautiful pictures,

My feelings while photographing the pretty blooms, it was a moment in life when I wanted to stop the time and wished to stay a little longer. It is completely a different experience I’ve been longing for, a scene you don’t see in everyday life.
