    Trying to achieve some of my goals this summer, and catch a few of the tougher birds to find. Spent a few days in Algonquin Provincial Park, and came home with a few shots.

    (*thud*) (That was the sound of my jaw hitting the floor, yet again, at your pictures).

    How the heck do you find, much less get such amazing shots of, the hummingbirds at rest?? And not only did you get a spectacular loon shot, you got it with a baby as well! These are all really well done, but my faves have to be the 3rd and 4th shots.
    :clap:

    (And I hope you had a great time in the park.)

    awesome. Never knew hummingbirds could sit still, but it appears that they can. Excellent captures, once again :)
