(Humming) Bird On A Wire


This is not the hummingbird I call Sluggo, the Ruby Throated bully that guards my feeders and is about twice this size. I think this may be a Costa's, but I'm not sure.

Fabulous picture. I don't think I've ever seen one this close and in such great focus.

This is an amazing photo! These little guys are so hard to get a good shot of, you did, and very well too.

How on earth did you get this hummingbird to sit still long enough for you to take its portrait?!

What a beautiful capture! I adore hummingbirds, but just can't seem to lure them to my yard, no matter how many feeders I put out.
