It is an easy set up, cant go wrong. Try buying some color paper and paint your background, if you dont and you shoot, many times you will have a black background as your lightset up is brighter than the ambient light. Those shots are cool to!

Let me know when they show up, sure wish we had them around here, the entertainment value alone is fun, and boy are they small. LOL

Nice shots, Keith! I have never had much luck with the hummers. They are so mean to each other around here that they spend all of their time chasing the others away.

Anyway, it's past season now in Houston, so I think I need to take the feeders down.
