Lots of birds in here lately. I'll add another:

Nice Dave. I love hummingbirds, but right now the way my backyard is setup, my feeder is too close to the wall of the house to get good shots. Upcoming construction hopefully will solve this. For now I will keep following my local kite family.

I'd love to have a kite family, but I can't complain.

To get shots of hummers off your feeder, set up nearby perches so that they can rest. That'll also give you more flexibility with BGs. You might leave the feeder right where it is and then provide a tempting perch within eye shot. Notice where they're perching now. It's usually relatively close to the feeder, but it might be high in a neighbor's tree. If you've got a bush in the yard, you can break off a branch, strip it of leaves and then have it sitting up above the bush's body and kind of leaning toward the feeder.

I only shoot hummers on feeders if they're rare; otherwise, I try to find where they're perching to rest (in sight of the feeder, almost always) and then shoot them around those positions. They repeat the behaviour over and over and there are constant territorial disputes. Once your figure them out, then bring the wife and kids to observe. They'll think you're a genius.

For the shot of the two fighting for the perch, this was 80-feet or so from a backyard feeder. They had around six perches within that radius, but this seems to be the most popular shot, so I set my tripod up there and got in close.

Multiple feeders increase your chances. Also, be on the lookout for hummers feeding at flowers. When their favored flowers a blooming, they'll come back over and over and over. Those are the very best shots, IMO.

Happy hunting,

Dave

Since I'm going to San Diego tomorrow, here is one from my first trip to the zoo from three years ago. I was still pretty new to the digital thing at that point, but this came out pretty good considering it was through glass.

Just got back from a vacation/house hunting trip to the Seattle area. One day, the wife and I went up to the Skagit Valley near Mount Vernon for the tulip festival.

Nice shot, chewy. Is it a bit tilted, though? Might just be the perspective playing games with my eyes.

Thanks Mark. I think it's just the perspective, since I shot it from the right. I triple-checked the tilting in post.

Wow, I go away for a few days, and all kinds of good shots get posted! Nice stuff everyone!

I was at the San Diego Safari Park on Friday and between me and my friend I think we took about 1800 stills and maybe half an hour of video. I will be processing this stuff all week after work, (except I am working 10s this week, ugh) and hope to post some of the better ones here. For starters, here is a shot of an African lion, just after he finished mating. It was fun listening to the parents try to explain why the big lion was "piggy back riding" the other lion to their questioning little ones.
