Fantastic photos. Gosh I know how hard it is to get photos of these little buggers. I've chased hummingbirds around for years and do not have a photo I could be proud of.

Have you tried to get them near a feeder?
Sugared water works wonders

NHL I have a big yard with about 2 acres of flowers, paths, shrubs etc. So, when I put up the feeders they rarely use them. In addition, the only hummingbirds I've seen here are the ruby throat. Wish we had all the gorgeous ones you are photographing. They are beautiful.
