Inspired by Mike Bons shots, went out and shot a few of the many fighting over territory, and the feeders.

Great shots ,what lens are you using ? are you using a strobe ?

Thanks Mike. Appreciate the kind compliment.
No strobe, and was just using a single 580ExII mounted on camera. Was rainy, and cold out, so didn't want to set up multiple flash. Was using a 500mm F4L with a 1.4X TC mounted.
I was quite surprised at the results, but the very overcast skies, and the soft light it produced, helped here.

Loving #3 in this fabulous set. Almost looks like he has no wings. Eye pop superbly. Well done, HBG!

Just wonderful, HBG... though I was expecting some trucks! :) The shimmery colours are beautiful and I think number 2 is my favourite.

All are really nice images of what, I'm sure you know, is my favorite subject. Great detail, and that flash really helped.

Thanks to all for the kind compliments. Had to pick up more sugar today, as they are going crazy here. Have to fill feeders both morning and night now. May have to find a 2 litre feeder or two soon.

Fantastic set. Amazing sharpness. Like Iggy the title fooled me. I thought I was going to see trucks.

Thanks Asnow.
(as for GM Hummers, there are very few around here. I have never seen so many jacked up pickups in my life as here though!!!)

Thank you so much Marko, and Ed for the compliments. Appreciate them very much.

Great shots but knowing you, photowise, it could have gone either way birds or trucks! Glad it was birds!

Thanks JAS, glad you enjoyed them, and yeah I know, but we have more of these type of hummers here than the vehicle types.
