I realize this seems a bit of an abnormal thread type, but I've seen similar threads work well. I did solicit feedback prior to starting this thread and received mixed responses so I figured I'd give it a go and see if it works.

If you have some Hummingbird photos, please share them. Given that we are starting this in the COVID-19 era, feel free to dust off some old shots and post them up.

Here's a few from a trip we tooks to Las Vegas in February of this year, just before the corona virus took over our lives.

It's impossible for me to see any photo of a hummingbird without thinking of the images made by longtime Cafe member, Uncle Frank, now deceased for several years.

Your first image is made in the style I especially like with motion blur in the wings. Well done!

If you open the dropdown menu located to the left of the thread title and select "Share," you'll likely get more contributions to your thread.

Now that you have already created the thread...
  1. Display the top of the thread.
  2. Open the dropdown menu located in the top right corner of the window. That menu is located immediately to the right of the Unwatch button.
  3. Once the dropdown menu is open, click Edit Thread.
  4. In the new window that appears, open the one and only dropdown menu.
  5. Click Share.

These are from a "wildlife area" at a local lake. We see many Hummers pass thru (both north & south bound depending on the season). Most of what we see are Ruby Throated, Black Chinned, and occasionally Anna's.

This was last fall. "Hummer Vs. Wasp"

Very nice, Nick.
Appreciate your contribution!

We put our feeders out this spring, but I never saw a single visitor. I know they were in the area because I saw a number of photos - just not at our place. Come on fall. :)
