Dang buddy you made these superior images by your exposures, BG control and comps and DOF. There is lots of good stuff in these images and yes indeed Hummer #1 is #Uno

You know I am a sucker for a 'Gracklin' good shot and you have pleased me over and over here on these!

#4 Lesser Goldie harmonizes so well with the coloring of the water and rocks below and behind.

Looks like the Sparrow has been gathering nesting material, nice pose and BG buddy..................

Delightful sassy pose on the Cowbird

You got yourself a new outdoor studio to enjoy, keep the images coming.....

WOW!!!!!!!!

You weren't kidding when you said these would be good. I can honestly say the first one is the absolute best best hummer and water I have ever seen Where is the bowing emoticon oh great master! Super sharp from tail to tongue, really Kruk this baby is what this game is all about

Oh there's more He said picking jaw up off of the floor and rinsing his tongue off.

2,3,4 are close to off the charts, you and I have discussed shots with the whole bird in focus and you rocked these
...Show more

You are really good for my ego Tim.

When I first saw this fountain, I immediately thought of Imagemaster's masterful Hummer shots at his homemade fountain, and I was really hoping to get something close to his excellent work. I'm very pleased with #1, but I still believe Tony's are much better... but thank you so much for the terrific compliment buddy, I REALLY appreciate it.

This was a very rewarding first outing to this fountain, I will definitely be going back often... stay tuned.

Thanks again for the very generous words my friend.

Kirk-
The Peanut Gallery thinks these are swell pictures .
The hummingbird pic is off the charts!
And in the last image- the grackle's "stare down" is downright menacing.
Charlie


Always a pleasure to put a smile on the Peanut Gallery's face.
#1 is my best Hummer image by far and I'm quite pleased with it.
Thanks so much for the very kind words Charlie.

Not only the rock fountain attracts birds, but it also makes a pleasing setting.
Top shelf images, Kirk.! They all have great qualities: clean, sharp, properly exposed, nice poses and a silky smooth bg
A very enjoyable set. Well done!
Socrate


It is indeed a beautiful setting if I'm careful about the BG.
Thank you so much for the very kind words Socrate.

Beautiful shots! Looks like the birds love the water fall. I've been building a small pond with water fall in my back yard with hopes they will come. I've had a bird garden for a while so I can't wait to get the water fall added to it.


They do love the water for sure. If you build an flat sloping area like in the photos it makes a natural place for them to sit and bathe.
Thank you for your kind words and good luck with your fountain/waterfall.

Beautiful captures! I especially like 3, the male Brewer's Blackbird - awesome shot. BTW, 5 is a female Brewer's Blackbird, not a Brown-headed Cowbird. Cowbirds have a shorter, thicker, more cone-shaped bill. Nice set up.
