As I was taking pictures last week, I suddenly found myself face to face with with a hummer hovering about a foot in front of me. He seemed curious about what I was up to and not at all afraid...even so I swung my camera ever so slowly in his direction so's not to startle him, managing about three shots before he took off again. Amazing little critters, boy!

Wow, that's amazing. Is it a Rufous hummingbird?

A very proficient image indeed. Very sharp. Just seems a tiny bit under exposed and that is easily rectified.

Fantastic image - I know how hard it is to get a good photo of these birds, so I think this is very impressive. Bit dark, but not irretrievably so.

It sure is....we've got alot of hummers here but the most common are the Ruffies,
Ruby Throats, Allens and Annas. I particularly like the Ruffies..not only are they the most colorful but seem to have scads of attitude and little timidity when it comes to folks entering their environment.
