    Excellent photos, Jerry, I love them all. As I scrolled through them, I felt each one was better than the last.

    Very nice images Jerry, and I think a little noise reduction will make them even better.....

    kind regards, Rudi

    Excellent Jerry. It's a pity they do not make the feeders a bit more natural looking.

    Thanks for sharing these shots. One of my goals is to someday capture a moment just like this. I particularly like Number 3 as the motion blur in the wings is just perfect.

    Thank you all for comments.
    Yes, it's not the best looking feeder but it still attracts the birds.

    Hi Jerry.

    Enjoyed viewing your humming birds. As far as suggestions go, I wonder if you could reduce the brightness in the highlights to bring out more details in the feathers (images #1 and #3) and somewhat de-emphasize the red and yellow parts of the feeder. Just a thought for you to consider. BTW, photographing bright yellow in the sunshine is very difficult for me.

    All of them are great. I have attempted hummingbirds in the past and could never get anywhere near these results. #2 and #3 are my favorites.
