Had my camera next to me while drinking coffee in our backyard this morning when she shows up.  Female Costa's Hummingbird.

Wow, nice!

Hey Northstar, have you been shooting with your 300 2.8 and X2 III - what do you think of the combination?

Seems all I've got around here are a few stray Cedar Waxwings and ducks getting ready to fly south.

Don't think that's my duck, Serindipidy!  Anyway it's beautiful.

Here's my Blue winged Teal from an hour ago.  There is a family of 9 plus mom that grew up under my nose at the pond.

6D 300 X2 as usual.  I'd sure hate to be back at 420mm!

Yes, I can see they are different. Very nice. I'm getting envious of the 300L X 2 8)

This is the meanest woman I know. She sits here throughout the day and chases off the other hummingbirds and sometimes she even goes after the woodpeckers.

Spending a few days in Pamlico River, NC.  Took this with 5D3, 70-200 f2.8II, with a 2X II  trying to steel our fishing lure.

I think she has a thing for you and she's chasing away the competition ;D

Very nice Serindipidy, you do very well with a reach of 640mm, probably better than me at 600, except relative to the ISO difference with the 7D.  That's why I've really been wondering about a 7D2.
