Default Hummers - oh, so close...

They seem to know when I'm pointing my camera at them and try to hide behind flowers..... I'm happy with #1, but the rest I missed by just that much!!
Panny GF1 + Oly 70-300mm

Saying good shots is pointless, you wouldn't (or couldn't) post a bad shot saly.

#1 is excellent

#4 and #5 are really good as well, just shows how small the hummer is are against the Buddleia flower

Yeah, little critters do love this plant... but you have big critters as well

Great shots saly! I really like photo #4, and yes, photo #1 is also really well captured.

I like the fact that there are different coloured flowers, a lovely series could be created, eg, with yellow / orange flowers too!

We don't have humming birds where I live in Australia... but I would love to see and shoot (with a camera, not with a gun!) some sometime.

Thanks for sharing.

Paul
