Real nice set, Jeff. You got some nice afternoon light on them, good for you! I like #1 the best.
 
You got a very nice set there for your efforts.
 
Great work! Rarely see them perched like that. Nice detail and light. Kudos!

Thank you! I figured it was worth a try to stand out there, because a bit earlier I had been out there next to the feeder without my camera, and they were buzzing around my head. Took the camera out, and they became coy.

Thank you! They can afford to rest, because the temps are still hitting 100F in the afternoon, so they don't need to keep in motion to stay warm.
 
Last one for me J but all decent.
 
Your patience paid off. That’s a very nice set. I’ll go with 1 and 5 but wonderful color in all of them. Well done.
 
Nice set. I don't have the chance to get mine in light like that. I might have to move a feeder.
 
Really nice set! My feeder's in the shade so I don't bother shooting them much. I have done the stand there until my arms ache down by the garden though.

Thanks! I had the feeder on a shepherd's crook, but the ants kept on marching two by two and raiding the nectar. After some thought, I just decided to place the feeder on a hook that was available. It solved the ant problem, and the wasps are leaving it alone as well. I have to be mindful though, and replace the nectar (sugar water actually) every few days, since I don't want them to get drunk and end up with a FWI.

Thanks! Yeah, I tried it with my Sigma 50-500mm, which I think ways about fifty pounds or so... :D
