A Nature Photographer in Santa Barbara

 

In a 1918 birding magazine, a photographer here wrote about how he photographed a humming bird in his garden.

 

"When the mother was away foraging, I covered the camera with green leaves, focused it upon the nest, then drew a thread, which I had attached to the shutter, into a room that looked down upon the nest, and there awaited the mother's return at dinner-hour. I am sure that she carried a watch, for dinner was always served promptly between 1:30 and 2:00."
