This is the first to arrive at my feeder this year , think its a female . I must have taken a100 photos to get this one , it was windy and she would sit on the clothline and just bounce away .

Ya, Great shot. Just this weekend, I was in northern Wisconsin, and I set up 2 feeders, and got about 70 shots of these birds in flight. It was hard, but the birds were real tame, two of them kept on attacking eachother over the feeder. One even flew through the legs of my tripod, I couldn't believe it! Good shot!

WOW! That first pic is amazing- probably one of the best shots I've everseen of a hummingbird. I have a few pics, but nothing like this. I hope we will get some of those here in Minnesota pretty soon - but I haven't seen any so far.
