Default Hummingbird in Burst Mode

Not as good as flutelady's, but I shot these in a single burst, four consecutive shots in about one second. I thought the sequence was interesting and shows you just how fast they feed! (GF1 + 45-200mm)

Thanks everyone!

Banksy - the hardest part is, they are so small that the camera has trouble targeting it.

Saly, Awesome photos. #1 and #3 are super beautiful. Definitely interesting to watch how fast they feed and your captures are fantastic.

(Thank you bunches for the compliment)
