Kinda reminds me of an F-4 with the tail anhedral. Close order drill... works every time! I'm trying to get some combat photos, but they move way too fast! Thanks, John.

Maybe a teeny weenie gun camera on the wing is needed for combat shots :icontatataplz:

You're welcome Walt :)

These guys don't pack heat... yet! They still handle things with beaks and body slams al la WWF. I tried equipping one with a pylon mounted 17 Remington Fireball; we still haven't found the bird. The bullet fell and the bird went backwards at 4000 fps; back to the drawing boards.

Eyeball to eyeball, he means business! I was just outside watching the evening dogfights and being the standby medic in case of a window strike.

I love watching them do that. I still dont get why I only seem to have one or two hummers this year. I saw the male yesterday in the flower beds. He went to the feeder as well, but then was gone and not seen again. Odd. :worry:

To attract every bird in the area start with a 50/50(1:1) blend of sugar water. Once you get the birds, gradually reduce the concentration to ~3:1. Hummingbirds will go to the sweetest feeder. Your neighbors will use 4:1; I don't share my birds. Change you solution often and do not clean the feeder with dish detergent. Use a bleach solution and rinse it well.see attached<[link]>.

I find the 7.62 NATO to be a bit under-powered for these guys. I much prefer the .333.

Thanks, Ruth! This is done with a 100 mm macro sitting almost on top of the feeder. I'm set at f/2.8 w/o a flash.

That 100mm must be nice to play with :D The no flash gives interesting colors :nod:

They are the real colors w/o iridescence from the flash. If I do use flash I use a diffusion cover with one or two tissues stuffed into it. The Canon 100 mm L is very nice, my old Nikon 105 sounds like a diesel starting up and scares the birds.

Don't know a whole lot about dof. but that's the f stop right?..Higher or lower number? Too low and it makes everything pretty bright..

Lower number. You can always use a neutral density filter if you have one.
