Great shots... We have a couple of these guys fluttering around our feeders right now, but they spook off so easily. Haven't really put a lot of effort into shooting them.

Very nice captures - really like a couple of the ones in the trees. Normally thes wouldn't be my favorite, but they give you such a good feel for how small these birds are and the focus/DOF really isolates them. We had a feeder up at work for a while but none of mine were as good. They recommend not putting them up at home because they can be an attraction to the local bear population.

Actually Lisa..They sit still a lot. Most folks don't put the feeder up where there is a bare limb or other uncovered object for them to perch on. Thanks for looking.

Right in front of my rocker is where they land and stay a while...About 20-30 feet away though. I like the name Penolta!! May have to copywrite that Roy...LOL I like the buttery smooth Bokeh in some of these.

After they get used to the idea you aren't there to eat them they will get very bold Inn.

No bears here so I have three or four up all the time. The drought has killed off most of the blooms so they are starting to swarm the feeders all day now.
