I bought a hummingbird feeder and put it out over the weekend. Almost immediately I had 2 hummingbirds visiting the feeder. I sat outside for a while with my camera. I think it will take me a while to get a decent picture. They are so fast!

WOW, Elaine! I think you did fabulously. The motion of the wings is incredible!

@Ruthiebear: Thanks Ruthie! I think that I took about 50 pictures. I either got parts of a bird or just a big blur. I did get a couple of shots of them sitting on the feeder. I think that maybe if I set up my tripod outside I might have better luck.
