More and more Hummers have been showing up this last week. I guess the cooler weather up north is pushing them down. This fellow in the first shot looks tired.

That first one looks like a rutted down buck. Good pictures.

I have a Nikon D 90 and a Tamron 150 -600 lens. I set up landing spots near the feeder by trimming away some branches and leaving bare branches where I want them to sit. They usually sit near the feeders to guard them. Then just stand or sit near the site and be still. They get used to people being close but don't tolerate much movement.

Thanks for the comments everyone.
