    Excellent! And with manual focus no less.
  5. Thanks again. Normally they are so flighty and are only there for a second or two. This one hung out for a good 30 seconds.

    I saw Hummingbirds for the first time in Costa Rica a couple of years ago. Such fascinating creatures to watch and listen to.

    They are tough to photograph so well done.
  8. Thanks again.

    Good shots, would be great if you could get a wide enough shot to crop out the feeders
