Wonderful pictures! Is that a ruby throated hummingbird? I've never had hummingbirds visit any place that I've lived. Thought we had some one year but they turned out to be hummingbird moths. Our neighbor when I was growing up had flowers that attracted hummingbirds. I need to find some trumpet vine. Some people consider it a weed because I understand once it takes root it's a b*tch to get rid of. But hummingbirds are suppose to be attracted by it.

Lucky you. I miss ours, but there is no species of hummer here in the UK.

Hi Moonshadow, right now all we're getting is Rufous and Allen's hummingbirds. I haven't seen any ruby-throated ones yet so far. One trick I've heard for attracting them is to tie red ribbons to the bottom of the feeder.
Tanita I had no idea the UK didn't have hummingbirds! I just assumed they were all over the world, ya learn something new everyday :)

What kind of camera and settings are you using to get these great shots?

Kansas A said...

Nadine I'm currently using the Canon Rebel Xsi. The settings I use are manual: fast shutter speed, ISO is between 200 & 400, Aperture around f/4.0 depending on the lens I use. You can get more information at my flickr site: http://www.flickr.com/photos/kansasa/

(blushes) ... actually, I did know you had one, and you're on my friends list. I just hadn't added your flickr feed to my reader.
