What kind of a hummer do you have there?

I'm not sure what kind of hummingbirds are in my yard, but they sure are fun to watch!

They are little dynamos aren't they.

Good plant for hummingbirds

We've got 3 feeders, and found, especially in hot weather, changing the water/sugar out every 3 or 4 days helps. We also use pipe cleaner to be sure little holes stay clean. When the crocosmia are blooming the hummingbirds love it. Also they like the liatris. Can't seem to grow a butterfly bush (not sure real name). Our soil best suited for growing rocks, so most plants in planters with brought in dirt. Any other good plants for hummingbirds that don't require a lot of area ?

I've seen them zipping around Monarda of all plants. That's an easy plant to grow.

We call this little guy "The Hammer"

Cause he does such a great job of chasing the other hummers away from the feeder!

There you go again! Knock down drag out gorgeous. What kind of a camera do you have?

Nothing special, I don't think (equipment wise)

Wow! Thanks for the compliments, but I am trying to do a better job with the hummers!!

I use a Canon Digital Rebel. These particular photos are taken with a 18-200mm lens, and a 420 flash attachment, all mounted on a tripod with a wireless remote.

I want to try my new "L" series, 100-400mm telephoto lens (used on the fox photos here) to see if I can get better shots, but I'll need to up the ISO to something stupid like 800.

Thanks again!
