    Gorgeous! I love the colors, and you managed to get the focus perfectly on his (her?) eye. Love it!

    What a great shot! I think the shots of them perching are just as interesting as the flight shots. They are such interesting and beautiful little creatures. Congrats on this one!

    I don't think I've ever seen a humming bird stationary. Very nice!

    Geez!!!!!! I just noticed that you shot these at ISO 1000. No way shot taken at iso 1000 would come out that clean on my rebel xti. Looks like I may need to be upgrading camera bodies soon.

    Thanks for the comments.

    Only the first one was at ISO 1000..I am not sure without looking into the exif data what the others were shot at.

    Cheers, Joe

    Joe, these are gorgeous. I've spent several hours over the past couple of weeks working on some hummer shots (especially stationary ones). I know just how hard these are to get right. Out of a couple of hundred images, I only have one I really like and she's not a very colorful bird. Congratulations! Are these wild, or were they in a hummer aviary?
