Hummer Frenzy Continues..

Discussion in 'Birds' started by MGlennn, Sep 17, 2005.

  1. ...the migrating hummers are still at the house (almost a week now)...the feeding frenzy continues....10-12 at one feeder, 4-5 at the other....they care not how close I am and are extremely angry if I let the feeders go dry (which they do every day now)....almost got one to land on my finger yesterday...

    Here are a few examples... :smile:

  2. Wonderful series. That second shot with the finger in it is totally incredible. All the hummers around here really stay their distance. These must have been really hungry!

    Nice series, Mike! I've seen feeding frenzies like that before and am always amazed how close they will let you get during those situations. Quite a different story when there's only a couple of hummers around. Thanks for sharing!

    Excellent, excellent series Mike. I'm jealous. Did you use fill flash?
     
  15. Thanks Frank !! :biggrin: Yes....2 SB800's....one at a 45 degree angle to the right of the feeder about 2 ft away and the other on camera...
     
  16. Excellent work, Mike! You've got a couple of "mat, frame, and hang" shots sandwiched in the series.
