I love hummers, and have a few here but this is the best I could do so far [link]
10 feet away from me with a telephoto lens and I STILL had to crop it in to bring in the details. Pathetic. :no:
Yours is prettier by a long shot. :)

I'm thinking of building a little "blind" or something to trick these little devils.

Checklist for photographing elusing critters:

1.)all-inclusive toilet break
2.) No-Doz
3.) empty memory card (important! been there done that)
4.) fully recharged battery (EQUALLY important!)
5.) Sh*tload of patience
6.) comfortable clothing and weather
7.) great luck
8.) six pack of beer (optional)
9.) snacks to nom silently :lol:

This one looks constipated!!! Ahh, how cute!!

One of the most cute and significant personality traits of the birds is their possessiveness. It's really cute to see how they react to anything that might threaten them in some way.

i caught these humming bird images in our local mountains - where sugar water resources are scarce - i'm never able to catch these guys in town either :no:
