Beautiful shots Gene, I love the gentle light in these, perfect for those iridescent feathers.

Thanks. The dark, cloudy skies really bring out his colors. It also helps me that he allows me to get so close to him. Here's one more from this morning.

Thanks everyone. I agree that the Costas has amazing colors and are among the most beautiful of hummingbirds.

One more and I hope no one minds.

Thanks very much. The light was changing fast but I thought I'd try shooting this Costas hummingbird with my a7r + 100-400L as well as my 5D3. This was shot handheld, manual focused at 1/80th.
