These little buggers are one of the toughest little flitty birds I've ever tried to capture. Still haven't gotten the shot I want but these are getting closer. Cute little guys but man... they need to lay off of the caffeine.

Dave - I'm guessing that they are pretty small along with being jacked up on caffeine. Great job in capturing tack sharp images !

Thanks Greg. Yes, they are very small, close to the size of a humming bird but a lot fatter. Which is what makes them so cute I think.

Nice work on a tough target, Dave. They are busy birds. Fortunately, they tolerate proximity better than many other small birds. If you want even more of a challenge keep your eye out for males displaying their bright red crown. Good luck

Thanks Vic. And yes they are very tolerant, which I've found to be a little too tolerant at times because they'll land within a few feet of your head which is never in the same direction your camera is facing.
Getting a male displaying his crown is the shot I was referring to that I still haven't gotten yet. I've seen them but have yet to ever get a decent shot of one. One of these days I'll get lucky I hope.

Great shots of a hard subject. They are indeed very quick.

If it helps, you getting very close to that shot you are looking for! So how many pics do you have of where they 'were' .............. They are a challenge, one of the most IMO. Hope that perfect shot is soon to be in your camera. These look very nice.
