Migrating hummingbirds have stopped into our campsite to refuel for their future journey south. Here are a few of these beautiful birds.

Really like #2 Bob but the best is the one you posted later (post #3) - love the pose for some reason.

They really are the most amazing little birds and you guys are blessed to be able to see them all over the South!

It's wonderful you stopped the hummers in flight. I love these little birds, and you captured them very well.

Wow - you nailed these little guys, Bob. I'm envious - I can't get a good shot of one of these characters to save my life! Great job, my friend.

Hummingbirds are amazing. We get some from time to time in our backyard. I think you've inspired me to try and capture some when they come around again.

This feeder was right outside of our motorhome door and one night I left the exterior light on and later noticed a few feeding, it wasn't completely pitch dark, but the light led them to the feeder I would assume. I will download a couple of other night photos and put them on another thread. thanks for taking a look Bob
