    Here are a few more hummingbird shots...

    all are cropped, some have had background elements removed

    The orange ones were very aggresive, and wouldn't stay still long enough to focus very well, these are the best ones of the 200 or so that i took.

    are those rufus hummers??? they are big compared to our ruby throated hummers...
    i watched them in wyoming one year..and they are more aggressive to the feeders than my little ones...

    these are just great shots... i would frame a few of these...

    aprilraven, I think there are a couple different kinds here. I'm not an expert, but from my quick internet research, the green/gray ones are female Broad-tailed Hummingbirds. The orange ones are most likely Rufus or Rufous Hummingbirds. You really know your hummingbirds... ;)

    Thanks for the nice comments everybody!

    great captures! are'nt they beautiful birds? do they hover in one place for a while? but those wings are so fast that they are just a blur, you have done really well to freeze the action, good work!
