Thanks everybody...#31 and #33 are my favorites as well. The numbering indicates the number of hummingbird pictures I've posted on Flickr for this year. I'm up to #43 and it's only the second week into the season. Mostly thanks to the excellent focusing capability of the 5D3. Last year, I didn't have as many for the entire year . Your comments are much appreciated.

Thanks everyone...it's hard to catch a hummer in an unusual attitude...I used to hate spray and pray but sometimes it yields best results...Here are two I just took this evening. The light was very low...these two were taken @ ISO 16,000 and 20,000. I had to do a bit of pp noise filtering but the fact it can be done was remarkable regarding the 5D3. This is the first time I had this high of an ISO. I remembered limiting the ISO to 25,600 as I found it produces roughly the same noise as my 50D at ISO 1600. I shot these handheld and I found I can't keep it sharp slower than 1/1000.

Amazing stuff and quite dream like. Your skill and talent really pushes the 5dmIII to its limits!

One question though. Is that hummingbird jettisoning its bowels in that last pic? Great capture!
