Early hummingbird

Showed up yesterday at the empty feeder. He did more stretching and preening than I have ever seen a hummingbird do. This is a tightly cropped image shot handheld at 500MM and has been worked on some to brighten him up.

    Oh wow. Wow again. *clapping*

    Capybara's are vicious and should not be let alone with small children. In-laws are another matter.............

    Very good Chuck. Guess you sold that 300MM ??

    Not yet but I haven't used it since I bought the 200-500. I've got a fair amount of gear I need to sell and roll into a new body I guess. Need to get off my butt.
