Well, Today it has coolled off quite a bit (High: 93°F, after 2 weeks of 100-115°F temps) So I decided to go outside and try my hand at shooting some hummingbirds. To my suprise, they were everwhere, there must've been at least 30 of them, apparently they're glad it coolled off too. Here's one I caught that rested to take a drink at my feeder.
(Taken with Pentax *istDS & Sigma 100-300mm f/4.5-6.7)

Very nice and sharp picture!

I've captured one yesterday with my K10D & FA 50/1.4
Shot at ISO100, F1.6 & 1/500sec
No PP, just crop and save to jpg.

Awesome, with a 50 mm lens that bird must have bumped into the front element!

Nice shots Nick. The 1.6 was perfect to stop those quick wings. I also find it unusual to see one with its wings not moving at all. My Dad had a feeder in North Carolina, but the birds would always hover when they drank.
