After chasing him around for days, trying to get some decent photos, this little guy and I finally struck a bargain. He agreed to pose for me occasionally if I keep him and his buddies supplied with food.

It's amazing how much food a few hummingbirds can put away in a single day. They're even worse than teenagers. They never stop eating!

This is an amazing shot. I have never seen them this colour. Absolutely fantastic color and sharpness. Im off to Pensylvania in July so hope to get one even 1/10th as good as this and i will be a very happy person.

Nice work

Nick

AMAZING! I love your humingbird series. The colors and the sharpness are incredible! The DOF is perfect. I wonder if you did much post processing to them? Beautiful!

This is a phenomenal shot Mick, along with a majority of your other photos here. The detail in this shot is amazing, especially in the feathers around his neck.

I'll add it. The details are amazing. I cant afford the 5d but the 100/2.8 sure is enticing ;)
