Great pics Steve! I like the 1st esp. those tiny yellow feathers on the neck, is that a female? Your lens really zooms in close.

That is a young male in fact all photos appear to be young males. I havent seen an adult male for several days now. Females will most likely be free of any splotching or dark spots under the neck area.

Wonderful! I can't believe what great pictures some of you are able to take. Great that you share with the rest of us. I already miss my hummingbirds.

Thanks to all for your nice comments on my photos.

Salliestar-- I just launched another post for season ending hummers- last one on 10-20.

denali-- I did some research plus watching what lens others were using then went to ebay and took a chance on a used lens that works well with my canon rebel t2i-- it a sigma 180 f3.5 macro. I saved hundreds but I had been searching for months as I dont have the funds to pay full price. I do love the lens.
