Good-oh. Now I don't feel so bad for not having one myself! :) Now I just need to get halfway near your standard.

That's magic. Love the background colour.

Thanks Jack.. its the sun on what grass we have growing about 25 feet behind him. I have two fighting for territory tonight. as good as it gets for distracted wildlife shooting. He was guarding his airspace.

The only flower in the entire yard. love shooting in the brightest sun of the day.. lol

Not a lot of meat on 'em, I reckon!  :p

I was surprised to see that you have hummers in Ontario, although, come to think of it, I do recall seeing a film about one species that migrates so far north : it always arrives before the flowers are out, but uses the sap wells drilled by sapsuckers in the meantime - I think...?

You have to collect up a wack of um Kate.  :p

Great shot, Hammy. I love how your Barn Swallows have these orangey-buff underparts. Ours in the UK are exactly the same species but are just white below.

Thanks for the comment!

Hutton's Shearwater. It's not razor sharp, but I was on a small boat that was bobbing up and down somewhat. The bird was very close and accurate framing was impossible. I've had to crop this shot on both the right and bottom to bring the bird more to the centre.

We grow Pulmonaria, too, but the only hummers it attracts are bees!
