I shot the hummingbird in our backyard. Hummingbird always trust me.
Very nice!

We got a humming bird feeder, but too late in the year I guess, because we don't seem to have any customers yet
{maybe next year}

Really nice picture. I find it easiest to photograph them when the first one arrives in the spring and gets used to my feeder. Later in the season when more arrive it gets much harder to photograph them as they are constantly chasing each other off the feeder, and they are really fast.

By my fantastic K-70 with HD 55-300mm

The detail is exceptional in this photograph Danny. Very well taken.

When I've got the feeder broken down for its douching, and I'm mixing up a fresh batch of nectar, the locals will hover and *glare* at me through the window. If they weren't so incredibly cool, I don't think I'd put up with their emotional abuse
If we aren't in the kitchen ours will fly around to the window in front of the computer to get my attention. They will hunt you down.

Fantastic shot! I love my 55-300, and can't bring myself to sell it even though I got a DA*300. I just got a K-70 myself, and it is a beast- love it!
