    Excellent shot Mike. You continue to set the standard.
     
  8. WOW, killer shot Mike............see it took 7 hours to tire you out so you could be steady and not excited on these shots. Cant say I want to try that, but if it works!!!
     
  9. Rory I had forgotten that in this series of shots I forgot to turn the flash on!!! DUH
     
  10. Thanks

    Again thanks all, of all the birds currently hanging out with me these are my favorites, they don't come as frequently as others but they are the most beautiful birds. ?now I did have several hummers visiting my feeder so I am hoping soon word spreads and I get some visitors and able to grab some shots of those guys
