I had almost given up hope for Hummingbird photos this year. Finally I managed to capture a handful of keepers of these tiny speedsters. The pollen atop their beaks is a good indicator that their non-stop feeding for migration has begun.

Thanks Bob. It's been a rough one down there this year. Hope you get some hummingbirds but without a lot to attract them I understand your worries.
