Gorgeous hummingbird photos

The detail on these is unreal. Thought the nature photographers here would enjoy them.

Baby Hummingbird Nest - COOL!

Marvelous! Thanks so much for the post!

I'm amazed that the female pretty much ignored the photographer and passing foot traffic. Years ago my brother and I found an abandoned nest which had been build in the fork of a pine limb. Tiny little thing and well camouflaged. It resided for years on a bookshelf, but somehow disappeared.

Beautiful pictures. The last one is kinda sad... almost like mom is looking at the nest one last time and missing her babies. A real life empty nest syndrome!

Hmmm.... looks like flash on the hummingbirds? Look how close he got to the nest... faux pas...
