Like Shootin' Ducks on a Pond...

...that's my opinion of taking pics of hummers on a feeder through a window - where's the challenge!? But, both my camera and I are too slow to catch them at flowers, and it's too hot to open a window. So...

What great shots, how are you able to get so many at your feeder, we have 6,and all they do is fight,all day long!
Never--do they hang out together,you are so lucky, and thanks for sharing such great pictures,you must have a nice camera.

Thanks everyone, I'm glad you liked the pics!!

Carol, the ratio is 1 part sugar to 4 parts water, some people boil the water - some don't. When the number of hummers in your population gets to be more than 8-10, an individual can't dominate all the others, and things will settle down a little.
