Great shots, RDV! They are so sharp & the DOF is perfect! Mind if I ask where (state or province) these were taken?? My dad & I were just curious about how much longer they will be in the midwest. Thanks for the posts!

W O W, #2 and #4 are my favorites, the composition on #2 is perfect and the last one is so clean and sharp, great shots

I like what cha' got cookin' here!!

I see you have taken a rose stem and cut it to get the Hummer with a flower scene... thats always a nice effect... the only nit would be that you don't see a rose stem horizontal too often so you can tell it was a prop job. Alot of my hummer shots are prop shots as well, it only makes sense to do that. Keep up the good work, I always check out your stuff here and over on N.S.

Apart from these being great shots let me in on your secret(s) - how do you do a prop with a h'bird.

Thanks for the comments folks!

Ron, I live in GA so I wouldn't be much help for the midwest, but they start leaving here in mid September.

Mike, I have Knockout roses all around my house. They are a shrub rose that are 4 feet tall and 4 feet in diameter with limbs hanging down, horizontal, and vertical. I also have a lake beside my house and that's where the solid background comes from. We have 6 feeders, all kinds of flowers, and feed about 1 gallon of nectar per day. I live in GA and when it's mid day and later they look for a place to perch usually on the lower limbs of the roses in the shade. Now your assumption is partially correct because I do prop on my elbows quite a bit. When I find a favorite perch I do trim some leaves away because of a critique on another forum about backgrounds.
