Default A few Oly hummingbirds

These little birds are so much fun to watch; if only they would take a break and pose every once in a while.

Nicely capture, very sharp great details. Like that you were able to freeze some and have some nice motion blur on the others.

Excellent stuff! these are all really nice, but the wing action in #5 is just too cool.

I see what I assume are catch-lights. Setup, please...

Thank you everyone for being so nice and welcoming to me! I had never expected or anticipated so many nice comments on my pictures.

Greg, these were shot with external flash I setup around my hummingbird porch feeders.
