1. My dear Solly Mack!

These are wonderful!

You truly captured the essence of the hummingbird. What great timing it must have taken to get these...

Congrats!

6. Thanks, CaliforniaPeggy.



The hummingbirds were nice enough to visit the flowers while I was nearby. I had been sitting near the flowers for just that reason, of course. lol

8. Thanks, ManiacJoe.

I shot some with freeze motion but I didn't like them as well.

18. Amazing photos of an amazing creature

This is a wonderful sequence of shots of the little guy. How fortunate to have such a visitor. I've never seen one in my yard but they are around here in North Jersey. I've thought about getting the special feeder to try and attract them. This might be some inspiration.

19. Thanks, ramapo

Do get one! You'll enjoy watching them and getting photos of them at play. You all get the Ruby-throated Hummingbird and the Rufous Hummingbird.

That's a Ruby-Throated in my photos. I get the Rufous as they pass through on migration. Never more than a few days in early spring. I think the Rufous Hummingbird is beautiful.
