I took these a few days back and haven't seen any of my hummingbirds since.
I guess they headed for warmer climates.

#1 (Lots of PP on this one. Removed several annoying branches)

What a way to end the season...all 3 shots are really nice. I can't wait to get better at bird pictures.

Nice fair well shots Mick. #1 is my favorite. Maybe next year we will be even better photographers and get more knock out shots.

I haven't seen any around my feeders for the last few days either

Wonderful shots! Nice to see them on branches, rather than on feeders for a change. Looks more natural. Donna

Thanks, Fred, Beth Ellen, Donna and Don!

I will definitely miss the little suckers. Unfortunately, the colder it gets around here, the less there is to photograph.

At least for these pictures, the trees had dropped a lot of their leaves allowing me to see the hummers better when they landed!

Mick, those are some very good hummer shots. I haven't seen anymore hummers here, either. They seem to have left with the last day of Sept. Was that with the TCon 1.7? Also have you gotten the wide angle lens from Lovelife yet? Been expecting to see some w/a shots from you.

Jerry - I didn't use the TCON on these because I was actually too close to focus with it.
I just used full zoom and some cropping. I may have used the 5EZ mode with these to help to see better in the viewfinder. I don't actually remember.

As for the WCON, I got it a while back with intentions of using it at the balloon competition here, but it all got rained out. Haven't had a good opportunity to put it to use since.
