    I have photographed birds for years and never have I devoted any attention to Hummers. Your images will serve as a reminder as to why I should go after these little beauties this year. Great captures!

    I will have plenty of opportunities late this summer hopefully.
  12. Thank you!
    Thank you Gale didn't know you liked Pink
    Thank you Anthony
    Thank you Paul!
    Well thank you, that is inspiring to me. Set up some feeders right away, Cheapest possible, Mix a 4:1 Water/Sugar mixture and change it every 4 days or so (it ferments if it is to old.) The older birds will leave form where I live in July and head sotht the fledgelings wait until August or so, I would suggest reaidng Keith's Sticky on the Humming bird shooting subject....
