That is so cool! Those little buggers are so hard to catch on camera.

I have 3 feeders and tried to get pics with my fuji s3800 but the camera kept shutting off. Did you have that problem with the FZ30, Im getting the FZ20 and am hoping to get more than 2 pics next summer of them.

I noticed the gunk as well Im glad you noted that its your neighbors, though it would make me crazy I would have to clean it myself. They do do one thing thats better for them and thats not using food coloring in the sugar water.

Hi Mnosbor, I assume your talking about camera shutting off because of the power saving feature? If so then no I didn't have that problem. With the FZ30 all you need to do to touch the shutter button and the camera is back up and ready to shoot in an instant! So if I saw a hummer approaching I would touch the shutter and begin to focus on the feeder or bird if it had already gotten to the feeder. Regarding the feeder they usually keep it pretty clean but out here in the warm sun it doesn't take long to get the "gunk"! Jim

No matter at what MP you took these at I find them to be very, very good for such a difficult subject.

Very nice work with that FZ30.
