    I thought I would give this hummingbird craze a shot...since Im failing in the crow hunt :confused: These are the best I could get. I dont have any feeders and had to find them in a flower garden. Man..these things are as hard as a crow to catch. :lmao:

    Wonderful job! :thumbup: Like Aprilraven, you were able to catch them feeding in their natural environment. They look awesome! :)

    I have a butterfly bush and some wild vines that bloom that occasionally they'll tear into. I am always surprised to see them try anything away from the feeder! :lol:

    Both are great, but my fav is #2 also. A hummingbird is so much more appealing than a crow anyway... great job!

    Great catch chiller, I have seen these guys in action and know they would be a really tough subject , fine job you did here.

    Chiller, unfortunately I have only ever seen these at a Zoo, but from what I have seen they would not be an easy subject to capture, especially with the shutter lag some of these cameras have. I am not going to vote a favourite as they are both excellent images. Ernie
