Hummingbirds - No Feeder & More than one

I have been looking around the internet to try and get some ideas before the hummers leave our valley for their trip south.
What I found is most photos:
1. They are at a feeder
2. Their wings are moving
3. Most are of one bird

Ok, I decided to try and get some hummingbird photos that are different. If you want to join in with your photos please do.

My goals:

Pearched on a tree limb

Try to get more than 1 hummer in the photo

Good job. Roger, like I said before, I don't know how you get them to sit still long enough. Great work.

Hi Jerry
The truth is patience. I probably spent 3 hours sitting on the ground pushed into a bush to get 3 multiple hummer photos that I kept. I did get a couple more for my next project (Hummer Portraits).

The Lie and it sounds better than the truth. I am a hummingbird whisper. When I use my hummingbird whisper voice they do as I tell them to do.

Great shots, Roger.

I've never seen multiple hummingbirds sitting in a tree like that. It seems like usually if one sits, another will come along and buzz by to drive him away. They are amazingly aggressive little birds; especially during mating season!

I dug around my pics and found a few shots that fit 2 of the 3 criteria. Here's one.

WOW!!
That is one pretty photo.

I couldn't ever count the number of missed I had in the 3 or so hours because they left before I could get a shot. I do believe my RDS is the only reason I was able to get the 3 I did get.
