As evening comes on, the hummingbirds stock up on the nectar before starting their next journey south.

Adam, I took this photo with the 43mm, they were in such a frenzy, they completely ignored me at close range.

Another RVer who travels with hummingbird feeders. My husband thinks I'm crazy but I usually hang one or two when we get to wherever we are going. Can't believe the numbers you have attracted. Well done.

And to think that I was happy today to finally see two at once on my feeder!

Bob, I am envious of you and was thinking that you are so very rich with hummingbirds. In light of the present world political situation and even though you have worked hard to attract all those beautiful little hummers, surely you must have attracted one that should have fed at someone elses feeder. Now we will forcibly take half of them and give them to those of us who have not worked to our potential to attract what we want! Just saying!!

nice shot!
try to use more feeders, so they calm down and it would be easier to get some 'clean' shots

Heinrich, I think some of them may be snowbirds from Canada, they come in all shapes and sizes.
