By far my favorite backyard birds! First time chasing them this year, I almost forgot how tiny and fast these fellas are.. Still fine tuning my settings, hopefully this won’t be my last (and best) hummingbird capture this summer.

XingPing(兴坪) is a small fishing village near the iconic GuiLin scenic area, took this on a typical quiet morning along the Li River, Karst topography mountains shooting straight into the sky with fluffy cloud and fog hanging in between. What’s not to enjoy.. 🙂

Blue Jay action during golden hour with sun hitting his back… Blue jays are my second favorite backyard birds, far behind hummers but way above others 🙂

Another picture from 朱家角. 朱家角 (Zhu Jia Jiao) is a water town on the outskirts of Shanghai, and was established about 1,700 years ago. Archaeological findings dating back 5,000 years have also been found. 36 stone bridges and numerous rivers line Zhu Jia Jiao, and many ancient buildings still line the riverbanks today.
