Very classy shots. How did you manage to get such low ISO levels with 1/1000 in that presumably poor light?

Thanks guys, it's a shame we almost take them for granted as they are very common round here.

But when we do take the time to capture them and their antics the results can be very worthwhile.

Yes beautiful. But also a pest when you want the apples too.
We suffer same here. Part of me wants to send them somewhere else. But..........

Beautifully photographed.

Don't send them up here, we have more than enough. I love them though.

Very nice pose!

I have found my camera always likes to express it's own personality at any given moment when photographing hummingbirds. That personality can be summed up in the title of the movie: "Grumpy old men"

Nice shot, haven't seen one of these in many years where I live, Also never heard them called "Red" before, is that common for your area?
