I think they are excellent. Great job. Number with the wing blur is my favorite.

Thanks. I like to try and capture these guys in flight whenever I see them. This is only the 2nd time I've been able to get one that was actually sharp and in focus.

Very good - sharpness, exposure, background all well done. I like the wing position in the first one best.

Thanks Allan.

I think you did a wonderful job. #1 is my favorite of the group. Nice shooting.

Thanks for looking.

Tough subject - good job!

Yes it was...thanks.

Nikon 300mm F/4 AF-S was the lens.

Don't feel intimidated at all...my hummingbird shots suck really bad (I might try again here in a minute outside since I see them flying around). It took me a while to get these, and these were the only 3 good ones out of about 20 (I was machine gunning it hoping for the best while trying to track hand held).

Very nice Dave. These birds can really be hard so I bow to you for getting such good BIF shots.

Thanks James...they are tough little buggers.
