Finally got a Hummingbird to hang out long enough to capture an image. It was later in the evening, I used the on camera flash. The images seem a little flat.

I like that first shot, he looks like he's overbalancing in #2 :)

Thanks,

I think I finally have gotten one bird that will stay around for some pictures.

I posted in another thread, I was wondering if all the other birds that I've been trying to attract are causing the hummers not to want to stick around.
