Nothing as exciting as some of the wonderful shots you all are posting, but I am grateful for the bees, butterflies and hummingbirds or I would not have much to shoot

Your comments and suggestions are always appreciated.

I hope you are not bored and that you enjoy,

Birdie

#1 is #1. Lovely image and lovely set overall. Do you just sit patiently waiting for the bugs to fly into the frame, or are you actively chasing?

Bee..autiful!

That first shot is one killer grab Birdie. Brilliant to see you upping your game with mining bees and you hit that one perfectly. Well done going for the speedsters! Looking forward to seeing more!

They are all lovely. #2 and #4 are my favorites.

You should be getting migrant birds and wintering birds there soon. In SF's South Bay we have seen quite a variety of both this month. I took a peek at ebird.org for hotspots near you and found that the New Orleans City Park and the Harahan River Batture have seen some interesting birds in the last week. Here is the url for Harahan: http://ebird.org/ebird/hotspot/L660592.

Thanks Ken. I don't prefocus , if that is what you mean. I watch where they are flying and focus on them when they are on the flower. I then , wait and watch for them to take off or go to the next flower. I am starting to learn some little things they do before they take off . For example, some of the bumble bees will walk to end of the flower petal just before they take off. The butterflies I do chase around quite a bit I tried the focus trapping , but that does not seem to work too well with the bees and butterflies, as they just don't come back to the same spot very often . Suffice it to say, it can be quite frustrating with these little ones and lots of deleted shots .
