Beautiful shots, as always. Why do you use spirullina in your mix, and what is the ratio of honey, sugar and water? I've tried spraying our humming bird mix, 4 water to 1 sugar, with little success. An open beer always attracts yellow jackets. Figures, since I allergic to them.

Your shots are AWESOME! I wonder if I can get those types of shot with my 50mm 1.8 with a Kenko extension tube?
