The last few hummers I have at the feeder have been very active chasing each other from tree to tree in the last few days. I managed to grab some good shots this evening. Some PP was necessary. Hope I didn't over-do it. I bought a new LCD monitor and I'm still wrestling with getting it calibrated correctly.
C&C welcome.

Very nice Mick! I'm going to miss the little Hummers when they'er gone. I have that same type bird comming to my feeders now. A lady that has a nature ranch , as she calls it, here said that she thinks that is a young Ruby Red Throat that has not gotten all of it's color yet, but is not sure.

Red, those are some very nice captures and nice PP. Hummers have been doing the same here, but only a few stragglers left. When what's left in feeder is gone, I'll take it in till spring.

I am sure it's hard to let them go after enjoying them for the summer. I am lucky as our Anna's Hummingbird stay all year.

I appreciate the complements, folks!

I got lucky that this one little bird kept lighting on the same couple of branches that happened to be in good sunlight. I just sat on the picnic table and started snapping. I noticed later thatthecamera had been set onaperture priority even on the in-flight pics. Normally, I would have had it set to shutter priority for this kind of shot, but these are some of the best results I've gotten. Kind of surprised me.

Thanks for viewing!

- Mick

tcook- That's a really nice looking hummer you have as your avatar. I take it that's an Anna's? Neat coloring on his head.

I really wish I had gotten a good shot of the ruby throated male, but he was just too hyper. I will definitely miss watching their aerobatics once they leave.
