Very nice ~

Are your hummingbird photos with a flash?

Thanks. No, I don't use a flash on birds.

Two outstanding shots, Rob! I really like #1 because of the intense eye contact.

This evening’s Red Kite. Having become extinct in England 13 Spanish Red Kites were reintroduced back in 1990. There are now approximately 10,000 with 1,800 breeding pairs. And most of them seem to be above my back garden!

Fantastic photos, Shalu!! The IQ of these images is simply amazing. I can even see the scales on the fish.
