I shot this guy today with the FZ-50 and TCON-17 from about 15 feet or so. I enlarged it as much as I could without causing to many jaggies. The two shots show how quickly they can turn their color to red. sometimes they will be bright red from the base of the neck up. They remind me of Spiderman.

Nice pics with plenty of sharp detail. Thanks for the explanation about their colour change too. I did not know that.

Great shots. Do you use your Tcon 17 often and how do you like it?

Great pics and amazing detail. Were you at 12X zoom or 12X plus the EZ?

Very nice capture Ted! I've seen them flast their color three or four times in quick sucession. It's just beautiful.

Thanks for the nice comments all, my wife and I really love those little birds. The will stay here all to entertain us.
I use the T-CON almost every time I shoot birds. The only time I do not is if I am standing very close to a Hummer feeder. Most other times I am 15 to 40 feet away from the birds so the T-CON is useful. And it is the best TC for the price.
I was at 12X as I have found once you crop a lot there is no real difference between 12X and the EZ mode.

Very nice, Ted. Our hummers have been gone now since the end of Sept. I sure miss them. They are very territorial where the feeders are concerned.:G
