Nice images, they are one of our main signs of spring. We saw our first hummingbirds of the year this afternoon.

Excellent hummer shots; I especially like the lighting and shadow detail you’ve managed to capture.

Nice shot; must have been one hell of a migration. That poor guy looks like he flew through an egg beater...

Good for you Rog, great close-ups! They haven't found my feeder yet but they're around.

Thank you gentlemen. This guy twice landed in the small tree next to me as I was watching the Orioles.
