Hummingbirds are moving out, but several remain. Taken at my parents home with a Tokina 400 AT-X

First 2 at 800 iso, third at 1600 iso, as it was getting dark, but the grain is acceptable, I think

Good shots. Summer is almost over except maybe for Roy down in southern Texas.
Birds will be gone. While hummers are still around, take pict of them as many as you can. Now I am not even picking up my camera until a nice looking bird is proposing to be stationary.
I can still recall the thrill of seeing and taking pict of a couple of sparrows in March . Seasons come and go. What can I say.

Not sure about central TX but we still have a few here in SoIL. Oh Roy, just got a feeder w/ pedestals for my Dad & now we have a male ruby throat hanging around. The first is a female (I believe) at a regular feeder.

Some are left here but it is to cool down in the next few days so they will be gone along with the Blue Wing Teal.
