Headed to Hornsby Bend last Saturday. A birder told me about this Rufous Hummingbird hanging out near some Turkish Hat plants. I went there and there she was. She's a 1st year female according to the birder. Rufous is considered rare in our county. So i'm excited to have captured these.:)

Wish the bg is better, but you can't get everything.;)

Whoa! Nothing wrong with these! I absolutely love the over-the-shoulder pose in the second shot, not one we see often with hummingbirds. The last shot is a stunner in every way.

Fee Dude...Why would you bemoan these shots, when others only wish the bird would be still. :rolleyes:

Absolutely beautiful....better go buy some mats and frames, cuz these should be on the wall. Congratulations on some beautifully exposed images.

Your kind words are very appreciated Ted, Mike.
I'm not sure if these are worthy of being on a magazine cover. Many fellow POTNers take much better hummingbird photos than i do.:o

Here's a portrait in landscape orientation. The pollen on her forehead gives me a smile every time i see this photo.

Fee, these are fan-bloody-tastic mate. Don't sell yourself short, you've done an excellent job on these indeed. What a little beauty it is too, stunning shots of a real looker, the last 2 are knock-outs and the last landscape one you've added also. Very nice sharpness and detail to all of them. Super images as always my friend, well done.


Cheers Wayne :D
