Cropping helped in posts #46 and 47 and the fact that I used a birdcam. Post #48 was with my digital scope(it makes 20' look like 2"). Post #49 was helped along with cropping but those I shot with my Canon.

These pics brighten my rainy day.

You are all doing a wonderful job photographing your visitors.

Here is my latest pic. of humming birds. This photo was taken at a ranger station in the Cimarron mountains

I took several photos but because I did not have a good camera most did not turn out at times there were as many as a dozen spinning around this feeder.

hummer Taken this morning

A male, ruby throated hummingbird.

I thought I'd try my macro lens this time, probably the best I've taken of the male so far.

Ya, ya, I know I'm supposed to be taking pictures of owls, but they will be here all year! These little guys will be gone in a month or so.

Green Man,

Great shot, thank you for sharing!

Have you ever noticed in the groups shots, all the birds appear to be female? Correct me if I'm wrong! I rarely get more than two females at any feeder, and if a male is there, well, just one bird *LOL*

Take care!

Quietman

By late summer a lot of the birds at feeders are this year's. The juvies all pretty much look alike and are hard to tell from the adult females.

Y'all sure do take good hummer pictures. Good equipment and skill add a lot to photography. I had an easier time taking a picture of our hummers' larder. We're at the peak of the season now, refilling this jug every other day or so to reload the two 48 ounce feeders.
Good luck, Wm

Stop taking photos of my refrigerator!!! Just kidding. We use 2-liters of diet pop forour sugar water. A gallon jug would be more convenient. You don't by any chance know how long sugar water keeps in a frig do you?
