Hi all,

Here are a few hummingbirds photos I took last week end:









John

These are great. Love hummers but we don't have any where I live. The purple guy is my favorite. :)

Now if only I could encourage more birds to come by my "observatory"!  However, it's definitely better than my deck and this is a first in a couple years for the Pine Grosbeak.  Now, if only the male would show up - never satisfied.  ;)

Beautiful shots posted recently, everyone.  Nice to again see shots of yours Serendipity.

Gorgeous photo Jack. Nice color and composition. :)

Here's an anhinga shot from a boat  tour - the white reflection in her eyes is the boat.  I thought the colors and bokeh turned out well - handheld 300 f/2.8 IS II + 1.4x III @f/4 1/1000s ISO 1600:

Very nice shot. Well done mackguyver.

Wonderful close up.

Seldom seen ( two years ago last pict. taken ) arctic sea bird seen fishing in Menemsha harbor. Probably blown in on the last storm. Very small - about 8 inches  (20 cm)
(also an  Atlantic Silverside )

Beautiful photos and great capture.

These are simply amazing photos. The landscapes and bird shots are so beautiful and sharp, I felt like I was actually there. The colors are really gorgeous. You are very talented! Thanks for posting this. :)

1) Keep learning as much as you can from various sources about photography and equipment.

2) Buy the best gear you can afford to match your needs; it's cheap for a reason and often costs you more in the long run.

3) Have fun and enjoy making nice photos or why bother?

Cheers  :)

So I finally got a half decent panorama.  It's from the balcony of my room at the Trump International Beach Resort in Miami.  It was a business trip and for some unknown reason, they upgraded me to a room with a huge balcony including a hot tub!  Needless to say I didn't ask why... 



They saw that you were a Canon shooter ;D
