    We recently had a Mom and Baby Humming birds around us. I got a few shots of mom feeding the baby. A little Grainy because I had to use and ISO 800 speed film to capture them.

    I have 3 more rolls at the processors now. Maybe some of those will be better.

    Thanks for sharing these pics - I've never seen a mom and baby hummingbird together before, much less a mom feeding the baby. I like the pov on the shots too. Well done.

    Thanks for the comments. It was really sweet to watch them. It was difficult to hold the camera as I have a severly ruptured disk in my neck. I was shooting up and hand holding since I didn't want to miss them by getting a tripod. The VR did pretty good with it like that.

    I shot 3 more rolls the next day but used a Tripod, right angle viewfinder and a remote so it was much easier on the neck. I'm hoping those will be as good or better. If they are I'll post some more when they come back from the developers.

    great pics, always a cool thing to see something so natural but not normally seen :)
    Hope you'll post the rest of the shots too.

    This is a first for me. I have humming birds around and I can't even get a decent shot of one. Keep us in mind when you get the others back.
