That is a close and convenient tree. It's easy to understand why you would like that as it helps you get those great hummingbird shots that you have posted.

Interesting shot - if my tree were known for attracting hummingbirds I doubt I would have thought about taking a picture of it at night. It works for me.

Thank you both. I lit it with the flood light just for fun.

I picture a wonderful over stuffed easy chair just inside that window....which is where I would spend alot of my day watching the avifauna.
You have a wonderful set up for birds and humans alike.

Thank you Wizzard and vsch1. I spend many hours at that window. It is a door so I open it during the day and wait for my models.

Caryl, While the tree is interesting, I am liking the way you set up the shot. Dark room, tree lit with spot light, earth tone of the frame of the door. Nicely done!
