Hi all,


Here we share another recent assortment of shots from the backyard studio. These are all taken at quite close range using various focal lengths from 400mm to 840mm.


Chickadee:

I have a soft spot in my heart for the chickadee and nuthatch... your Bluebird shots are always special... but those hummer images are exceptional captures... lovely work Kenn.

Thanks everybody,

We're shooting the hummers as much as possible now because we know they won't be with us much longer. I've favored the adult male shots lately as they usually depart first... But we've got a bunch of juvies too and I thought I'd share just one more shot now of this juvenile who's all bristled up and challenging our dominant male.

Hope you enjoy it, and thanks again.
