Finally some decent shots...my next plan is on getting some sort of running water contraption so that I can get them to bathe in it.

Lots of fun to view. Keep them coming. Hummers should get paid for the hours of entertainment they provide.

The first image has a humming bird in a "swallow" dive position.

Great images, well done.

Looking very much forward to seeing that. I've never seen one of those fella's in the real world myself, but they're just wonderfully intriguing and fascinating - and you portray them as splendidly as on documentaries and nat.geo reportages.

I'm on the edge of my seat for the next installment - and also terribly curious as to what makes a bird-bath specifically "hummingbird-attracting"?

Not sure what makes it so attracting. However, on the other forum I belong to there is a member who has a really simple set-up and they actually go under the running water and sit on the rocks he puts under the stream of water. I guess they like to take baths just like everyone else.
