I absolutely love hummingbirds. So I thought I would post a few of my favourites from around the world. I'd love to hear what you think. And if you want to see more be sure to visit my website. I have photographed over 100 species of these amazing birds.

All the best!

Outstanding images Glenn. Very consistent. :thumbup: Welcome to the forum!

The White-crested Coquette has really interesting plumage. Calliope Hummingbird is my favorite of the above captures.

Indeed, outstanding images with consistently high quality! Nice work. Such beautiful,special creatures. The wood duck is probably the prettiest of the medium-sized birds, and the hummer is surely the prettiest of the small birds.

Amazing pictures Glenn. Do you post process the backgrounds at all or is it just extreme lens bokeh and careful composition? I'm only asking because some of these are at f/8 - but i have no experience at the focal lengths you are using :).
