    I like the second one. First time I saw a shot of one not flying/hovering.

    Cool! I've only rarely seen pics of hummers when not in flight. How close were you able to get?

    About 10ft or less.

    He usually shows up at dusk and takes a break in that tree.

    If you just hang around and keep low key, he'll roost on a branch for awhile.

    The downside is the background and lighting from that angle isn't always the best.
