p.1 #1 · Shortage of Hummers :(


I was torn between joining brother Tim in the Yaks this morning or hitting the Garden for one more try at the Hummers. Only 3 Hummers total seen this morning in the Garden and they were not about to give me any looks Got a couple frames.


#1












#2








Was about to leave when I heard a familiar call. I recognized it as a juvi Coopers Hawk but looking around I could not see it. It called again and it was as though it was right next to me. I walked a bit to my right and peered into a thick patch of bush.

#3












#4












#5












#6








Nothing but head shots as I couldn't get far enough away Oh well he didn't stay long but at least I got to see this young one



#7
A Goldie from the Garden












#8
A peep on a log

Oh it looks like you made the right chose Tom, what a wonderful set. I really liked them all, but the second hummer gets my nod just for the colours.

I almost cut myself on these...they are that sharp! Sorry for your hummer shortage..I had hummer inadequacy all summer. But that juvi coop is pretty as they \come. Can I assume that they are less skittish as juvis like red tail juvis?

Nice captures Tom. Wow, the garden has gone down hill in a hurry. For only seeing three birds you did good and managed to get some different flowers in the frame! And the opportunistic hawk shots made it worthwhile.

BTW - right after I posted this I head a strange bird over my house in Kirkland. I ran outside and saw this [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/V-22_Osprey] [/url](sorry, no captures :-) ).

Sorry to hear the hummers are so slow, looks like I'll hit the water again tomorrow morning!

You may not have had a good count on hummers but you sure came away with some super keepers!!! Super sharp shots of the little buggers.

Oh wow the Coop sure gave you a gift, you must be living right my brother!! What a killer set of portraits. He sure if full of attitude, he has an evil look in all these

Killer perch on the state bird, got to love that one!!

The peep on the perch is too cool!! You don't often see that!

Superb set Tom, spot on techs all around.

Even though there were only 3 hummers, you captured them beautifully, with perfect detail. I love that blossom too. That Cooper is incredible!!! How cool to get so close. Your photos are always inspiring!!

Nothing to be disappointed about there Tom. I'd be more than happy with a morning like that!

OK OK..............killer killer set here my friend!

You take me in nice and slow and gentle with those little buzz bullets and treat me to color in #2 that this floral guy loves and dot it with iridescence beauty with wings and flaps up on the back

Then...............you astound me with the intimidation stare from a most incredible Cooper portrait, ohhhhhh man those images of juvi-Cooper are to die for Tom Didn't know an image could look so good, the IQ here blows me away and nothing but character comes from those eyes

Goldie has a wonderful coloring, kind of a rust-orange-yellow patina and what a perfect color plant to be perched on for this shot with a super creamy BG! Ya, I like it

Nice light on that peep, just sweet as I see it Tom.

Fine work Mr Sanders, puttin' the gear to its fullest and paying dividends in return, lovely

Your observation is right on the money buddy, seems a kid is a kid no matter the species
I once shot a Redtail juvi at 70mm while he dined on a mouse and if I would have reached out and petted him on the head I doubt he would have cared. Now if I could just get within 300 yards of an adult...............
