    I love the silhouettes. The light shining through the wings is fabulous. Wonderful capture, Maurie.

    Is this a case of Move Over Dahlin'? A great shot Maurie. Lighting caught the wings beautifully!

    Really a neat picture...and unusual...Maybe it was meant for the flash not to go off....Wonderful lighting for the background to be light in contrast to the two bird silhouettes.

    The capture on the wings is marvelous! Great job....I think not having the flash was perfect!!

    I agree with Susan above - not having the flash fire was a GOOD thing! (That's one of those lame Canon camera problems though....flash doesn't fire when you want it. You'll not have that problem with a Nikon! OOPS! Did I just say that? OMG, I've let the angry dogs out now!) I'm just kidding around all you Canon fans!

    Fantastic silhouette effect. I'm totally jealous that you have hummers and I don't (yet). I planted red honeysuckle just for that and still, nothing.

    Yes, they are. From what I've seen hummingbirds are very territorial, and are always fighting for who "owns" the feeder. Happens in my hummingbird feeder all the time. Nice shot by the way.

    Great shot Maurie...I think the best shots are flash-less, my flash is always off.

    Very pretty! I have one in the theme that's slightly similar, but yours is much better :-)
