These are beautiful little birds and I am fortunate to have them in my backyard most of the year.
Oh wow Doug!!! That is so awesome.
I am thinking that I for sure need to come visit you with my new lens.
This is awesome Douglas you must have been very close or used a very long lens. The detail is stunning.
They are nice - we have 4 feeders out right now with at least a dozen Anna's trying to defend their favorite feeder. They stay up here year round as well. They are highly territorial and I often see the males perched near the feeders ready to chase off others that try to approach. The aerial acrobatics that ensue when another male tries to come in to feed are simply mind boggling.
Alan, I think you need to take some photos of them so that I can become even more jealous.
I hope you do. You can come for the spring migration and see lots of birds.
Thanks, Ben. I used a 500 mm lens with a 1.4 extender for a total of 700mm and I wasn't more than forty feet away.
Thanks, Alan. These guys ae pretty territorial but Rufous hummingbirds are even worse. Sometimes you can even hear the body blows
That is a great image. So clear. I've tried to get good ones in the past, and it's tough.
Nice Doug, we have them too. Always fun to shoot them.
Nicely done Doug.
Wonderful shot! We have a few hummers hanging in our yard this winter, but not nearly as colorful.
Nice detail and angle of view Doug.
