Very nice photo. The Humming bird migration is in full force, my wife is feeding 3 quarts and 1 pint every 24 hours.

Actually Rufous and Allen's Hummingbirds are found in small parts of Texas at certain times of the year. They are out in Ft. Davis right now and seen photos of them from the past 2 weeks. Rufous are also in Rockport in Sept and October.

Here is some photos of my feeders yesterday morning while it was raining. I used a flash since it was so dark and zoomed out to show numbers. One photo I have has 31 in the photo of mainly Ruby-throated and Black-Chinned at 3 of the feeders. There was either a Rufous or Allen's females or juveniles here the day before but I was not able to tell what it was. Both are very aggressive at the feeders. Easy to spot them by their tail feather colors and aggressiveness. I am going through 3 quarts of sugar/water now out of 4 feeders from daylight to dark.
These are all Ruby-throated and Black-Chinned.

That's what I figured. Cool looking bird. My boss has some pics from a solid white female ruby throated that hung around a bed & breakfast near College station a couple of years ago.

I have 3 feeders out, there are about 4 or 5 that show up regularly. Funny watching them, there is one that is dominant and will chase all the others away if he/ she is close by. But nothing like the numbers STXRANCHMAN has in his pics.

I gotta get my feeder going again, entertainment.


An unethical shot is one you take, that you know you shouldn't.

Most I've ever seen was at a little restaurant in Capitan NM, they had a dozen feeders out and they were all full. He said he was probably feeding over 100 a day.


Yes! A Weatherby does kill them deader.

This is one of my favorites because the background lighting was just right:

Getting the light right and the right pose seems to be the toughest part. I had to set the tripod up and ended up shooting about 30 pic's before I got what I wanted. In the process I learned a little trick that I suspect the good photographers already knew, trust your camera! Once I got everything set up and in focus I stopped looking through the camera or it's screen and kept my eye on the target and started getting better pictures. Too much delay when looking through the camera or at it. My new one has a Bluetooth setup so I can go hands free, set the camera up and back off.
