Serendipity Again

On Sunday, I never did get out for a walk, but still felt like getting out the camera.  I decided to see what I could do if I pointed my big lens at the hummingbird feeder.  The goal was to push the camera pretty fast, get a hummer in flight and without the feeder in view.  It will come as no surprise that hummingbirds are fast.  I got two kinda sorta OK pictures out of that, and this is one of them.  (I also got a not very good shot of an Allen's hummingbird - but the shot was good enough to be able to identify the bird.  Not necessarily easy since they are so similar to Rufous Hummingbirds.)

At one point after about fifteen minutes or so of taking pictures, I decided to find a new position.  When I turned around, I discovered I was being watched intently by this Gray Fox.  I froze and moving slowly was able to change the camera settings to make this shot possible.
