Not the quality that I'm looking for yet, but some neat shots...

Check out the tongue here. I guess the seal is leaking on the feeder.

Those first three were taken with the shutter speed set at 1/1000 of a second. Anything faster, and I just couldn't get enough light in with my 300mm lense fully extended. If I had a really good lense that cost more than my camera, I could do it...

These other two are taken at 1/800

I gotta show these to Ruth when she gets here. Hummers are her favorite. I got her a hummingbird tatoo on her bikini line about 10 years ago. She loves them. We have a ruby and several others that frequent here. Great pics.
