The hummers are wonderful and that first spider is truly fascinating! I have never seen anything like that. )

Cool! I never see hummingbirds around, let alone be fast enough to take a picture of one.

That spiked black and white spider, from what I found in my search, is called a spiny-backed orb weaver. Excellent photo! I particularly enjoy spider macros.

Keep up the good work!

I appreciate all the comments, everyone.

For the hummer shots, I set the tripod about 4 feet from the feeder and used a remote shutter release with a long cable. I was actually in the house and watched through the window for them to come to the feeder. I was also using a flash, which I think helped a bit. I hope to get a few more pics of them before they head farther south.

Thanks for the info on the spider ID, Mark. It has had a huge web between my crepemyrtle and lemon trees. Eventually, I just know I'm going to forget and walk right through it. :sad:
