|This was taken at Sylvan Lake State Park in Colorado. We saw four species of hummers during our 3 day stay. Broadtail, Ruby Throated, Rufous, and for the first time, a Calliope! I managed to get a couple shots of him, but for some reason, I have not found them on my card yet, argh. I had only one chance since I saw him only one time.
Last year, at this very same time of year, we were just a few miles to the south of Sylvan Lake and I was using my 70-200 to take pics of Hummers, now I use my 500mm and what a difference! So much fun to use. Not very many Canon lenses can be shot wide open with great results, but this 500mm is one lens that can be.
I knew I was pushing my luck at over saturating the challenge with yet another hummer, but I just love taking pictures of these guys. It's a real challenge. Happy it did well and thanks to all who voted and commented.
