Found a few more on HD.
All Hummingbirds.
I can tell you tracking those little buggers with a 620mm glass is a real pain in the *ss.

But worth it! Great photos. I've never actually seen one I like the third and fourth ones especially. The third one has really nicely contrasting colours and the birdie looks kind of funny doing whatever it's doing.

Simply fabulous images here.

The plumage is revealing so much details and the colour really pops!

Beautiful work.
Out of interest, if you don't mind me asking, what kind of keep rate do you have trying to shoot little buggers like that?

Well done on a very tough subject. I am sure it takes a lot of tries to get keepers or at least it does for me! JIM

620mm on digital? To think that I'm having problem with people on 200mm all of them are great! My favorite is the first one for the contrast and the last one for the action
