Here are today's results. Used the Pentax 50-200mm at about 185 mm. ISO 800; shutter speed at 1/750th with aperture between f/8 and f/11. I moved the feeder into the direct sun to be able to use a smaller aperture. Also used the Sigma 500 DG Super in High Speed Sync mode. All images shot in RAW; some sharpening appliedbut no cropping. Not sure how much longer these guys will stick around!

This is Mama Hummer

Wow! Those are great! Which camera is that?

On a side note, I've always heard that you need to take hummingbird feeders down in the fall or they won't migrate. Don't know if it's true or not, but I'd hate to be the cause of a hummingbird freezing to death.

The images were taken with my DL.

The hummers around these parts leave once the days begin to cool--typically by the end of Sept. In the past, we've left the feeders up until there is no sign of them anymore. Also in the spring, they seem to come around lookin gfor the feeder which is our cue to set them up. Jay
