He kept "cawing" my name, so I took his picture.

Not a lot of meat on 'em, I reckon!  :p

I was surprised to see that you have hummers in Ontario, although, come to think of it, I do recall seeing a film about one species that migrates so far north : it always arrives before the flowers are out, but uses the sap wells drilled by sapsuckers in the meantime - I think...?

Spot on, Kate. These Ruby-throated Hummers must be hardy little things.

Great shot, Hammy. I love how your Barn Swallows have these orangey-buff underparts. Ours in the UK are exactly the same species but are just white below.

No sir Jack.. I never use flash for anything.. Don't even own one.

Good-oh. Now I don't feel so bad for not having one myself! :) Now I just need to get halfway near your standard.

Hutton's Shearwater. It's not razor sharp, but I was on a small boat that was bobbing up and down somewhat. The bird was very close and accurate framing was impossible. I've had to crop this shot on both the right and bottom to bring the bird more to the centre.

We grow Pulmonaria, too, but the only hummers it attracts are bees!
