Wildlife In The City

Ok, this city is a polluted, sprawling, over-populated megopolis with too much concrete and not enough green, but there is plenty of wildlife here. One bird you will see plenty of if you look out for it is the humming bird. If you can’t be bothered to keep an eye out, put up a nectar feeder! I managed to get a few photos of a hungry hummer today on the outdoor roof garden of the Holiday Inn, bang smack in the middle of the Historic Centre.

Sadly, the light was dimming, and I had a choice of using a slow shutter speed and losing the wing detail, or using a high shutter speed and gaining a load of noise.
