Excellent shots, I like #1 the most. How did you catch them, did you have a feeder near by? I put up to feeders but its still hard to get them in focus.

Thanks everyone. Yes Matthew, I do have a feeder (without a perch) hanging from my deck on a hook. The small limb is strapped to the hook with a bungie cord above where the feeder hangs. This way, I can get them in mid air when feedingand when they perch on the limb...and I don't have anot so natural plastic feeder in the pic. If you watch the little guys, you'll notice they feed, then back up, then come forward and feed, then back up again (at least when there's no perch on the feeder)... so, I just aim where they back up... and shoot. It's almost like keeping rhythm to catch them at the right spot.
