This is a feeder shot...the feeder is to the right of the frame. I still have them (actually 4-5 at the moment as they are stocking up for their migration South) and I usually see the last one around October.

Canon 1D4, 500mm f/4L + 1.4 extender, 1/2500" @ f/7.1, ISO 1250, tripod, natural light.

I can go back and find one from 2008 or 2009 and post it if you'd like. I save everything for a reason. :lol: Thanks for the reply.

I haven't spent as much time with the Hummingbirds this year because of a Grey Fox living in my backyard and he/she usually comes out between 5-6pm which is usually the time I like to photograph the Hummingbirds.

Thanks everyone for the replies. The background is just some Azaleas and Dogwoods in a flowerbed about 60' behind the feeder.

The hummer and the fox are both top notch, Duane, both gorgeous shots.

I really don't want it (or them...there's actually 2 in the yard...male and female) getting too comfortable because of where I live...people tend to freak out when they see something like this in their backyard or during the day. They tend to automatically think "rabies" when they see a Fox or Racoon when the sun is still out. :rolleyes:

However...I am enjoying NOT seeing Mice or Norway Rats at my bird feeder sine they've showed up. :D

That's a gorgeous shot of the fox Duane! But I hope they don't eat hummingbids :). Now that it's been months since I've seen the only hummingbird that visited my feeder, I am convinced that my neighbour's cat got her :(

Beautiful shots, Duane, both of them! Lucky to still have mature male RTHBs around that aren't mid-molt. My only mature male looks just awful right now.
