Just took a few shots while the hummingbirds were feeding in the evening light. The sun light made the wings glow.
Not most likely the clearest shots going still wanted to share them with you.. They as you know move quickly. The background is the trees and the glare from the sun. Hope you like them .

Keep each other in your thoughts and prayers

Dawn, these are lovely, i usually scare the birds off long before I can get them in focus so you did exceptionally well to get such a lovely series of shots

Excellent set of shots Dawn - V1 is outstanding, your timing is far better than mine, I have been trying to capture a sparrowhawk (at least I think that's what it is!) which I regualarly see on my dog walks but without success so far. Well done for such a brilliant capture of a very elusive (and fast!) bird.

kind regards,

Robin
