    Your images of hummingbirds are sensational...Your patience pays off as these little guys are as fast as lightning in their speed and there are not many who can take pictures of this clarity to freeze them in action.

    Don't know how it could get much better! This is awesome. I actually saw a little hummer visit my glass feeder at 8:00 this morning.

    This is a very fine shot, Maurie! That vigil of waiting for long periods of time is what wildlife photographers do everyday. I really like this alot.
