    Doobie Ducks' Hummingbirds


    0 Not allowed!
    Something I have not done yet here at MJ Growing is share with you the art that jump started my notoriety world wide. I've captured wildlife and avian images for years and I could never break into the publishing world until creating something unique. My first time being published was with Marco over at Treating Yourself mag in issue #14; in which he featured a story by me "Cannabis Photographer Goes to Pot" that included some of my hummingbirds and cannabis images.

    Those became very popular on the web as Peeps seem to think of Mother Nature and what a wonderful thing we have been blessed with, two of her finest creations, cannabis and hummingbirds. I'm sorry it took so long for me to get a thread up here but I am shooting pics right now and have some never before published images I thought you'd enjoy.

    These are single frame digital captures each taken in a single moment in time. By that I mean, they are not Photo-shopped, nothing is added or taken away from them. Some are cropped and lighting/color adjusted, sharpened, but NO other digital manipulation is done to these.

    There has been a lot of controversy regarding my images and if the hummingbirds pictured are actually feeding on or ingesting cannabis, I do not believe they do, I have never seen them try to get nectar from this species of plant. They are only "passing thru" my grow, inspecting the plants, searching for food, nectar, possibly bugs. That makes these pix even more rare and hard to capture.

    First is Tom Hills' Deep Chunk, a seeded mom flowering now..enjoy...DD

    Good luck with that LDB..thanks for writing, they will come inside my greenhouse but have a hell of a time finding their way back out..unless- I place the feeder very near a window. In the summer I have all the windows/sides open so it is hen not a problem and they come often.

    Puff always good to see you, thanks, and yes, I've worked with and for many breeders, some popular ones and some great elite ones as well. It's always tough guaranteeing results if they offer me seed as ol Mother Nature throws a germing kink or something in the basket every once in awhile that can ruin things. But I try hard and offer copies of all my images to them at the end of the grow.

    Here is my Menage A Moonshine created with MODs Menage A Trio and Bohempians Old Moonshine F2..cheers..DD

    Puff thanks, the coloring is very difficult as it depends on where the lighting is coming from if it shows or not. Sometimes it just looks bland. I am using two separate flashes at different angles along with natural sunlight to capture what I can. I have plans on trying a few other things to see if I can get more of it to show. Peace..DD

    Just Hummers no weed...

    Going back thru my threads and look what I found..hummingbirds. Sorry again for my being so tardy in keeping this up-to-date. Today I captured some of my first images of 2015, and sorry also I have no female cannabis to shoot these little birds with right now but the pics still need a home on the web. With these my plan was super close up but the fine feathered friends didn't quite do as I asked. Enjoy my friends..fall will be cannabis and hummers time. Peace DD

    yeah man, it's truly awesome the clarity you get, with both the bird and the flower, ...and when you consider that one is such a rapidly moving target, to get that kind of focus is just awesome!

    ...i really need to get back to your site so i can buy one of your images to frame, maybe one for me and one as a gift for my daughter too, lol.

    anyway, thanks for sharing your beautiful images here with us!

    peace, SOG
