    Caught this little guy on a recent camping trip to Vermont a couple of weeks ago. Tried to identify him but there are so many that look alike to me. :confused: Could anybody help with an id? This was the sharpest one I could get of him....still trying to improve my technique with the 300 f/4. :redface:

    original.

    Looks to be a Ruby-throated Hummingbird and your image appears to be pretty sharp too!

    thanks for the kind words Jimmy.

    And thanks for the id Andy....I stopped on the way home yesterday and picked up a National Audubon Society bird book and that was a big help in identifying him as well.
