There will be days when you get the shot(s) you missed days, months or years before.

All wonderful images and it is helpful that you shared the setting info. My goal now is to get a shot like your second image of both male and female Ruby Throated HB. Saw my first for the year yesterday, 5/5/14.Would be elated if I had taken any of the above. The challenge begins.

Thanks again Steve, Much appreciated, it won't be long before you have them up here!

Ah, your little buddies have arrived! Beautiful shots, Bret. And I love that you photograph them with natural light. I too like the movement in the wings. Amazing little birds that you captured so very well!

Thanks very my my friend, this is one of a pair that are very shy, hope to get some today but the forecast is for clouds and rain, sunny tomorrow!

OK, my bar has been set! Think Bret has posted some better Hummer shots, but if I could get to this level, oh wow! You da man, Buddy!

Thanks Rog, I sure hope that more show up soon, once a few raiders show up they will lose some of their fear of me pointing at them! I can get some more. I have a beautiful male around but he is very shy.Thanks again!

Bret, I too like a little wing movement. Nice work.

Thanks Jeremy, yes, me to, the wing blur is pretty cool, when I can get two or the in one shot is what I like best, those little guys really do move those wings some kind of fast.

Nice shots. I saw one the other day but I did not have my camera. I was so happy to see they are returning!

Thank You.

Wonderful shots, Bret. Guess I better get my feeders out.


All I want is just a little more than I'll ever have.

Thanks very much Jo, I have finally had one take up ownership of the feeders this past weekend and had his first defense last evening so hopefully this weekend I will be able to get some of him or her, not sure yet! Thanks once again!

Great shots and thanks for supplying the camera settings, to a rank amateur like me these are invaluable.


I like what I like.

You are correct, I can't wait either, maybe today!

Thank you, you are quite welcome keep in mind that I tend to underexpose and shoot slow as I like the way it shows how fast their wings really move, also for the most part all of us here are amateurs, I started right were you are! Practice and spend money!
