    Excellent George. I've yet to get any really decent shots of these guys. These are much more than decent. :wink:
  4. These are just perfect. Don't know how they could be any better.

    NICE :>))))))))))
  7. Very, very good! That is tough to do with the 500. I am hoping that there are more...
  8. You're definitely a master at these! These are incredible!
  9. Thanks a bunch! :) 

    The place we went had feeders all around, the trick we found was to take down the feeders so they went to the flowers. They had no problem letting us do that. Here are a couple more, it was so hot I left early so I did not get that many different shots;


  10. Simply gorgeous, and the last one is a classic pose. Nice sharp well composed images. Well done.
  11. Unbelievable!!!! These are wonderful.
  12. hey are all lovely, my favourite is the one with the flower.
  13. These are fantastic!

    This is absolutely fantastic.

    To me, the color of the background is what make the captures really stand out. Of Course, the sharpness and composition are top notch also.

    Thank you for sharing these.

    Great work George.

    I can't imagine any other picture of a hummer better than your first one. Not only is the combination of flowers and bird perfect, that blob of light in the background finishes it off.
  18. George,

    I have yet to see better Hummers pictures.

    Spectacular !!!
  19. Wow, these are great George. I really like #1.
