Thanks Mark! Love the caterpillar shot. I know what you mean about the knife edge DOF using the Macro. It's an art for sure.

I have the feeder hanging safely out of kitty range, and I have not seen any casualties. As my critter cam has shown me, my backyard is quite the party zone for all kinds of animals during darkness! Besides countless feral cats, I know my yard is regularly visited by deer, raccoon, foxes, possums, skunks and turkeys. (This doesn't count the king snake we found in the garage one summer) I have also heard owls, but sadly haven't actually seen one yet. I'm pretty sure the hummingbirds are safe out there, but who knows.
