    Wow, your humming bird shots are amazing... And a head on dragonfly in flight!

    I adore the position of the hummingbird in the 1st shot, but #3 and #4 are my favourites because everything is absolutely perfect, focus, detail and rich colour... And the hummingbird looks huge! Do they just fly by your balcony?

    Those are some nice shots...you're facing the normal problems of shooting little fast things.
    Your F/stop is sufficient to have the entire bird in focus...can your camera handle a higher SS and the associated higher ISO. My old Ds3 cannot.

    Hi Chauncey, yes I probably could a little higher I'll give that a try.

    Thanks for letting me know. I will have to get one for next spring... My comments were compliments (not feedback) on your gorgeous photos!

    I like #3 and #4 because you can see the beautiful colors on the back of the bird. They are all great shots.
