    Oh WOW!!!! I am in awe of your hummingbird shots, Maurie! What a terrific capture this is. The one in front appears to be hanging by his wings...is that what they do??

    Thanks everyone........ Susan, it does seem that she is hanging by her wing, NORMALLY, they will sit on the perch, but this time she was in a hurry....the guy in the back seems a little pissed that she cut in line :~)
