Hi Folks,
This is my 1st shot at birds, of course I had to choose one that's about the size of a big fly.

Come on Scott, tell the truth, you have been photographing hummingbirds for several years now...
I bet you taught Uncle Frank didn't you? :)

Nice photo...

Very nice Scott. I'm jealous. I put up feeders almost two weeks ago and still no hummers. I'm also very impressed. :wink:

Excellent.

Wow, just don't know how one can even get one in the view finder.

I don't have any in my area.

I sat for an hour before I got a few shots. She came in 3 times, but was always on the back side of the feeder. Finally after an hour she fed from the side.
