    Pretty docile little creatures, they let me get within about 6 feet of them. :D

    Love the first, I think the foreground and back ground add alot to the composition of the shot.
    The second is wonderfully sharp, but i think... I don't know. Maybe the empty background doesn't work for me with it.

    Great colours on both :)

    hehe, inspirational text like those pictures they have in offices?

    Thanks for the comments, It's difficult to shoot these things, I had to switch to manual focus and at 6 feet, 200mm, and f/2.8, there's little room for error.

    Great job!
    I know how difficult they can be. They sure get spooked easy!
    My hummingbirds are starting to get pretty used to me and fly over like 'hey there. who are you?'

    Next year I plan to plant flowers just for them.
    Your photos are perfect examples of how interesting pictures of them can be without the typical red food feeder : )

    Great, great shots! neea, I am not sure of your location, but several years ago, an old girlfriend planted what I think they call ( bee bombs ) hummingbirds love them, and they come up every year. Not to mention they are pretty wild looking flowers/plants.
