Excellent image quality! I could see any of the EXIF information...would like to know the settings. Also, what lens and body were you using?

Another wonderful set - such rich color and depth of detail!

Interesting to see that Bee Balm is a hummer magnet in your region too! (Saw some at Roan Mountain yesterday at just the same stage of bloom, and also much relished by the hummers.)

Gorgeous photos of a very difficult subject. I have tried to take photos of hummers, but never with any success.
