Older camera, said to be a not very high quality lens, but what beautiful results! Sharp and detailed, and excellent capture of the behavior as well.

Thanks for the kind comment. These birds must be getting used to us-was sitting in a chair about 10-0 from the feeder. The flash didn't bother them at all. I know the camera is old but I prefer the CCD rather than the CMOS-have a K10d also which I believe is the last Pentax model with the CCD.

Great shot, much better that I have been able to get of any hummer

Great photo. I have tried many times, but have never even come close to such a fine photo of a hummer. It will be quite a while before I see a hummer in my neighborhood!

DMJJR, you are getting the most out of your retirement in Arizona. Great shot of the hummer.

I find that when there is nectar around they are oblivious to other things that might normally frighten them away.
