I didn't spend a lot of time shooting outside this past summer but did have a good outing one day and thought while I'm signed in tidying up another post I'd just share my hummers from that day...

Hey gessman you had a great day with those hummers! I had a bad year for them this year, only saw them 2-3 times all year and didn't really get a good shot either. Those are really good.

Thank you trigger finger. We weren't overrun with hummers this year either but I did get a few shots at them. Spring's coming up soon. Maybe our luck will change...

Speaking of hummers, I have seen a lot of folks talking about taking in their feeders at a certain time so the hummers won't hang around 'til too late just for the juice. I read something recently about that and I'll just share it here for anyone interested in reading it. I plan to post this each time I see this issue discussed on the pretense that it might clarify the hummer feeding rules:

From Birdwatcher's Digest at: http://www.birdwatchersdigest.com/bwdsite/learn/hummingbirds/feeding-rules.php

When should I feed hummingbirds?
Some regions of North America host hummingbirds all year long, so residents there can put the feeder up now and never take it down—except to refill and clean it, of course! Some people may be concerned that leaving a feeder up will prevent hummingbirds from migrating in the fall. This is a myth. Hummingbirds (and all migratory birds) have an internal “clock” that tells them when to migrate. No healthy hummingbird would ever stick around just because you’ve left your feeder up in the fall. However, late migrants, young and inexperienced birds, and hummers that are not completely healthy may be helped by the presence of your feeder, especially in areas where blooming flowers are scarce in fall and early winter.
