Well it was a good thing that I carried my camera with me:biggrin: He had one of the tamest Male hummer that I have ever seen.
How close did I get...as close as a 70-300mm VR lens will let you get...about 5 feet.
After I was done..according to the bird he treated me with a hummingbird flyby. :wink:

Enjoy and as always CC welcome.

1. 15-20 feet above me
