They are not the easiest bird to capture when they are buzzing around. Nice shot among the yellow blooms.

Even at that high crop, you still got a good image.

Indeed, the little guys are VERY difficult to capture when they're busy (and not too easy when they're not busy). This is excellent. The last hummer I saw in the yard was impossible to shoot, nothing but tree and vine in the image.

Humming birds are definitely something I wish we had here... but sadly that's not to be, too damned cold I guess.

A very good capture rhanz. It is the perfect setting amongst the beautiful yellow flowers.
