Yes, they are really neat. We have3-4 different kinds in this area. Very shy birds and you have to keep your distance. I used the H2 and about 300 mm to get this one. Want to get one in motion soon. Thanx

Nice capture, Jim. I have one of those feeders in my backyard and it is fun to watch the birds come to have some nectar. I've taken dozens of pictures...here's one

Ok, Tullio, great picture. I wonder what shutter speed you might have used, I like to see the wings a little blurry and not completely frozen. Your picture is about right. I have been back a couple of times but no more birds. Might put my feeder back up but it drew so many bees, I took it down.../ Jim

I really like the Sepia colored fire shot. It is the perfect shot to be accentuated by this effect and propbably the first picture I have ever seen where I truly like the effect. The sepai effect is truly made for this picture.

All the hummingbirds are fanatstic!

Nick,

Remind not to buy a used car in NY. :O

Mercurycu,

I have found any really bright photo looks good in that setting.
