    New Hummingbird comes and uses my perch. He has claimed his spot white I think I notice a small patch of red but it is a juvenile I am sure.
    Has been a great poser giving me some different looks. it has been over cast. Hopefully next year I will buy some better flower and setup a few more lights.
    Thanks for looking

    Great set of shots. I'm curious to know how you're getting that solid background, it looks more than dof blur so I assume you do it in post?

    Great set Matt. You got yourself a little poser there.

    Thanks for all your comments

    The backgrounds are all "natural". No printed paper behind the subject or background replaced in photoshop.

    I am very close to the subject and the background is very far away. Dof I usually too thin even for this small bird but there is little I can do about that even stopping to f22 doesn't help much. The background I have positioned myself for a new, old wood fence in the far background and grass as my backyard is slanted and I can get eye level shots with grass as the bg if needed or a combo of the fence as well

    Wow, those are beautiful. I could only wish to get that close to my hummingbirds.
