OK Whittler, Alandra, and Carol.. Here is my best attempt at getting a Hummingbird shot. Alright quit laughing now... I can tell I need a lot more practice before I can join the Lens Flare's Hummer Club. As you can tell I have no idea what this guys name is. He or she is just brown like the desert here.

Just a hint,I used a couple wire ties and strapped a branch right to the post the feeders were hanging on,that kept them nearby for a while guarding the feeders.

WOW!! I'm in the Hummer Club already?? COOL :) Hopefully I can get some better shots of this kind of Hummer where someone might be able to tell what it is. I now have two feeders with the nectar stuff along with my giant bird bath. If they don't like that they can go to a Motel LOL.. Oh Whittler, I got so excited when it landed above me in the tree that I forgot all about using some fill flash.

Well Alan,thats a pretty good first attempt.It looks like she is in the shade,I don't think it would be so brown in the sunlight.Have you tried your flash?I had some pix of our ruby-throated hummers in dim light, that looked a lot like that one. Oh, you're in now,I can tell you are hooked on capturing these guys.lol Welcome to the club.

Hi Alan, not laughing at all. Sure is better than my first attempts. Be interested to hear what type she/he is, if you find out.
