Interesting. Just hung a round concave mirror above my patio/veg and a flower area 5' from where I sit. The humming birds are frequent to nearby hibiscus, many other flowers different colours, 10'-15' and clothes line under Sea Grape tree. Curious if they would come this close, and in time, if not will try at their spot on clothes line. Beautiful photo.

those are really nice comments from both of you, Alex D and Sandrak, thankyou both very much. Am very happy to share the hummer photos with everyone, as had wanted for years to capture some good hummer shots : )

You take the best hummingbird shots by far. I love this one in particular because you have captures a lot of details in it. I think I have learned a lot just by looking at your pictures :) Thanks!!!

This composition is one of my favorites of your hummer photos. You get to see both the bird and garden, yet the background for the bird is properly out of focus. Also, you wonder what the bird must be thinking. Great job.

that's very nice of both of you, Vicki and Kerry. Your generous comments are appreciated : ) and am happy you like the photos. Will look forward to seeing some of your photos of Australian birds, Kerry.

This is mind-boggling, Alandra, with the perfect reflection in the gazing ball and the blurred background. Gorgeous colors

thankyou Golda, for the nice comments, glad you like it : ) They are so territorial, these are chasing the bushtits, chickadees and sparrows away any chance they get.

There is no appears about it Alandara.If you ever see them invading each others territory their tail feathers fan out just like this.Must have thought it was another hummer.Great capture!
