    These sibling Rufous Hummingbirds were newly fledged and able to go to flowers and feeders on there own. However, I don't think they had picked up on getting their own bugs, yet. Resting on a branch between their forays, they were watching for mom to feed them. She would come up to them as they begged but didn't give them anything. They eventually followed her and days later I saw them doing their own foraging through the firs and desiduous trees. Thanks for looking.

    They look good but I'd post them full size. I'm struggling to get them to open on my tablet. I have a closer look later on my PC.

    The one with the little one begging food is awesome! Great set. I'd love to see you post these full size also.

    Great set, really like the 3rd one. What shutter speed did you capture that one with?
