A very rare treat for me.
Lens: sigma 10-20 Camera: k5 IIs Photo Location: Saugus Ma. 
Posted By: charliezap, 05-10-2021, 06:52 AM

The other day 2 male hummingbirds were frolicking around the feeders. I usually don't see 2 males together as they are very territorial. I grabbed my KIIs with the sigma 10-20 lens and was able to get less than a foot from them as they played and flew all around me as if I wasn't there.I used the on board flash for these shots. Hopefully they will do it again.--charliezap.

Wow. Two for the price of one. The ones near my feeder are quite nervous and often take off as soon as I even think about grabbing my camera.

Amazing! I hope to get my first hummingbird shots this year. They are attracted to anything red. Last year I put on a red t-shirt, grabbed my camera, and walked into the yard near to where I had seen one. Within 60 seconds one flew up to about three feet from me and hovered. Before I could get the camera to my eye, he figured out I wasn't a flower (or was just camera shy) and zipped off.

Third is magical. The lower one looks like a fey butterfly! And yes it is impressive those shots were done with the wide angle 10-20 zoom.
