Final Photos of the season?

Hi all,

We really didn't get too many nice shots this year even tho there were about the same number of hummers around here as last year. I'd definitely hoped for some more and better photos than we had. But anyway, our sweet hummingbirds have all but gone now, and I was glad to get a few last shots of this little one yesterday... so I thot I could share them now.



We'll keep the feeders full and be watching for stragglers now, but I fear these may be the last pictures we get for the season.

Hope you enjoy them,

Kenn :]

Wonderful shots, Kenn! Though my hummer population is gradually decreasing, I still have around 15 or 20. Since I'm just 150 miles north of the Gulf, I bet some of yours have found their way to my feeders! While their stay will be brief, don't worry...they are in good hands!

Thanks Donna,

Ha... you'll probably be over-run with them as they're all flooding southward into your yard!

Take good care of them please... 'cause we'll sure want them all back next year. :)

Wow Kenn, fantastic photos!
I only had 2 hummers, that I know of, and they were extremely timid. I didn't get one stinking shot this year! Not one! Awful year, just awful :(

Great shots. My guys left Sept. 30th so pics are all that's left to put a smile on my face. I have one of my guys as my wall paper, but I'm not a camera person, so it's not a great pic like yours.

Thanks tracey, janellelee, and bdriver,
We're always glad when others enjoy our photos. :)

Our camera is a Canon S3-IS (usually with a Sony 1.7x Teleconverter lens attached):

We've been very pleased with it.

And btw, all the photos in our main public galleries* are freely downloadable at web resolution (not really suitable for prints, but most of them are large enuf to be used as desktop backgrounds on any but the largest monitors).

Kenn,
Are you saying it is ok for me to use one of your wonderful pics as my desktop background? I would love to do so! I know many pics on these forums you can right click & save but I never do without asking the person first. So, may I use one or more of your photos as my background?

Kenn, I like your choice in cameras, I gave my GF the S5 IS for Christmas last year.
Query....where did you get the telephoto lens from? Lensmate?

RE: Final Photos of the season?

Hi gator,

We got the Sx-IS adaptor from Lensmate yes. The Sony DH1758 TC lens itself we got from an online vendor which no longer stocks it, but it is currently available for less than we paid at http://www.provantage.com/sony-vcl-dh1758~ASNYH00J.htm

hth,

Kenn :)

Kenn,
Thanks for the okay. I appreciate it. One of your pics-the one from Oct 6th with the tongue sticking out is now my background & I may put some of your beautiful blues in my slideshow for my screen saver. Thanks again,
Susan
