I've taken hundreds of hummer-pics, but they're mostly of the males. The females' diets run towards protein, they're shy,
and the males usually chase them away from the feeder... except when they're in season. It must be romance time, because
I caught this beautiful female Anna's Hummingbird sipping the syrup a few minutes ago.

The background is a blooming oleander bush. I used the 80-200/2.8D ED combined with the Kenko Pro 1.4x TC to get a FOV
of 420mm for this image. It's one of the best I've managed to take of a female. Ain't she purty :)?

I liked the composition, in between red flowers. I wish I could take picture of hummingbirds, there's only one kind near my house, I tried 3-4 times last year and before I was ready, they were gone.

... And we've got another winner! :lol: That's a very fine image, my friend, spectacular in fact., and yes, she's purty alright! 8) The background is just about perfect to complement and highlight the little beastie!
