At the Bachelor Pad

There are three of the bushes in a local campground and all the male hummers seem to be hanging out there. I kept seeing females couples zipping out from the middle of the bushes and then the males would come back and hang out on the branches and then feed.
Wow, great capture! I especially like how the colors on the hummingbird are the same as the plant.

Fantastic.
Wonder if its possible to get the wings in focus/ frozen sharp.? Dunno how fast they are and it would prob lose the great sense of action too. Just wondering aloud.

One of the things on my bucket list is to capture a hummingbird and freeze it's wings in flight! Great capture! I am amazed at how close your two shots are using a 200mm lens.

@skipt07 I was able to get pretty close, but these are pretty big crops too!

@sleepdozer57 I would have preferred freezing the wings, I probably would have had to really bump the ISO though to get the shutter speed Improbaly would have needed, so I opted for the better quality Iso. I'll probably try that next time though. thanks so much for you comment
