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!

Congrats! Nice work!!!!

This is one of the reasons why I love birds/wildlife, because it's not just another photoshop contest that is most landscapes. The moments happen and then they are gone, they're strived for, chased, and among many disappointments and frustrations, enduring perseverence leads to a victory like this!
