They shake their tail feathers a lot when other birds approach their feeder. Allen's hummingbird.

It's a green bush next to the feeder and the blue is the grey fence showing through. The branch is off my neighbors apple tree and it's wedged into the feeder for them to land on; much better than feeder shots! I've been keeping my lens wide open to blur the background.
I've been using the beta version of Lightroom 4 to ease the noise and adjust color. Thanks for the compliment, Ruth. I hope all is going well with you guys!

I love the idea of putting a branch into the feeder! I put one up today for them to get used to, and I can see the possibilities :love:

All is going well up here - needing rain but loving temps in the low 70's!

Is all well with you?

They get used to it fast! We have quite a number of birds now and in the evening it looks like a swarm of bees around the feeder. Two birds on a one bird perch is common and they are sharing???
We were up in the 80s today, but had some rain at the beginning of the week; I think!
On the home front, things have taken a nose dive. My wife is showing symptoms of a previous illness. We go for the first of the tests tomorrow... I don't expect it to be good news.

I saw that this evening :love: It does seem like they're a bit more generous this time of year...still lots of fighting but there were 3 sitting on the stick with two reaching over to the feeder :laughing: Here's a photobucket link that Cait took last week [link]

We had a tiny bit of rain on Monday too - barely got the cars wet! Just enough to make a mess in the dust LOL

I am so sorry to hear about your wife - I know you were hoping that the two of you would be healthy at the same time so you could go do a bit of traveling...she's in my thoughts :hug:

Wow, you do have a load of birds! I'm hoping for a stray species other than an Anna's or an Allen's. I think Alaska this year is out now. She'll do fine with medication and the doctors know what to look for now in the side effects; if not, I will tell them.

The funny thing is less than a month ago we only had a handful...I like having them but I'm having to fill the feeders almost daily again :shakefist: I was enjoying the break in that :laughing:

At least you've got Allens for contrast! All we've got right now are the ton of Anna's LOL. The Rufous will pass through in a few months and last summer we had a black chinned family stay - I'm hoping they come back :love:

Were you thinking of doing an Alaska cruise? I'm sorry if that gets canceled... And she's very lucky to have you being her advocate!!! Wish my father-in-laws wife was that for him...

There are tons of different ways to photograph though. Presently I'm presently using a 100 mm macro on both the Nikon and the Canon. These birds have to eat. I try to make two species look like twenty. People seem to like hummers, so I photograph them. Sometimes I'll take 2-300 photos and not get one unusual one; other days they're all pretty good. I'm constantly changing my lighting and speeds to get different effects. For me, learning more photoshop has really been the key.
A cruise!!! Not me! I'm not a social person. I would fly into Anchorage and arrange something from there.
