    After being inspired by Amanda and Big Mikes hummingbird photos, I decided to post some of mine for ya'll to see. Since I have 5 hummingbird feeders, I tried to capture a few shots of the birds feeding.

    Girl, that last image is first-rate. :thumbup: I have a feeder too, but one of the reasons I've not bothered shooting is we've all seen them at their feeders (only way to catch the little buggers!). :lol: Capturing them actually partaking in natural food is quite a feat.

    Great work! I also like the wing action of the first image. :D

    They're one of my favorite creatures; tiny, ferocious little things who hate sharing the feeder! :lol:

    I'm always sad when they leave the area in early October. :heart:

    yeh aprilraven! That first one is bang on for me; love the movement in the wings. Excellent job of bluring the BG too.:)

    Ditto! Good shots! I've always wanted to shoot them especially after I found out that 1/1000 won't even stop their wings still! What was this shot at? Just to fuel my curiosity?
