Tony, I just realized these were originally posted on my birthday
So I will consider them a present to me
For one who attempts hummers this was a very big wake up call that I have a long way to go. The exposures, colors, variety of poses was nothing short of spectacular. And to think this is probably only a small sample of what you have.
Thanks for sharing this gift!

Wow, what a series Tony. I particularly liked the shots in which you had two hummers - not seen that before as far as I can recall.

Incredibly sharp images, great backgrounds, lovely colours and exposure.



Paul.


Thanks, Paul.

Tony,

What sort of sharpening did you use? And how many pixels tall was one of the birds in your typical flight shots?

Here is an album of actual hummingbirds, feeding on actual flowers, many shots with multiple birds. Note that the wing motion is completely stopped. These images were not processed in any way except for cropping.

They are all really wonderful. Like a fashion shoot! Speaking of which, maybe a fashion magazine would run these?

What an amazing set of hummingbird pictures. I have been trying to get decent hummingbird shots and struggle for each and every decent shot out of hundreds taken. I particularly enjoyed the fountain (?) shots. I am a little curious of their behavior in the fountain. Is that a regular occurrence? Thank you for sharing these!
