D70 80x400vr Nikor. I have been trying to get a last few pictures before they depart. They are eating almost the whole daylight hours now so I expect I shall wake up one morning and they will be gone until next year. I always miss them very much. You lucky people who will have them all winter down south.

Hi Irene -

I love shots of hovering hummers, and you nailed this one! Wonderful sharpness is highlighted by the almost featureless background. Nice.

Nice capture, Irene! I agree with Dao who said it looked 3D as that was my first thought as well. Thanks for sharing that tidbit of info on why they are eating all the time. I've had a feeder up all summer and had a few strays here and there but in the past week, there are several and they are eating sun-up to sundown. Now I know why! :D

Thanks so much for your comments. I just wish it hadn't taken me all summer to really get a good capture. Just one female left, the rest left yesterday. I hope this little one doesn't linger too long.

Nice shot Irene. They are fun at times to photograph but the waiting and the amount of shots you have to take before you get a good one is a pain in the a-----s at times.
