Hey Everyone,

I thought it would be cool to post all of our hummingbird shots on this thread. Hummers are fun to photograph, and when you get a good shot, it's priceless! Share your hummingbird photographs with us! Here's a few of mine, taken last week. Female and Male Ruby-Throats:

Anna's near my house, could that be pollen or nectar stains on the bill?

  Wow, that is one flexible bird. I love watching all the minor adjustments that birds have to make in order to land and make hairpin turns. It looks like you caught one of my favorite moments.

I like the way this picture catches the twisting of the wing. I think it helps illustrate how the bird gets part of its lift off the 'upstroke' of its flapping.

Here is my favorite ruby throat. My pictures cannot compare with all of the fantastic shots already posted but I am learning not only about identification but also how to take better pictures.

Many thanks to all who are so willing to share.
