    These are few shots of Anna’s hummingbirds in my backyard. Those guys are very friendly, sometime they are just 3 feet away from my camera.

    Wow John, these are excellent. I can't get within 20 feet of my feeders without chasing them away. :rolleyes:
     
  4. Spectacular shots each and everyone, I had little or should I say no luck capturing these guys this past spring and summer.
     
  5. Beautiful John, there so cute when fluffing and preening.
