I really had a blast photographing these hummingbirds. There were some clouds, but there was considerable sunshine, coming from behind me, and the birds were very active. So I had ample opportunity to get decent shots. As expected with this type of shooting, I had more than my share of empty frames, or out-of-focus birds, but I had enough 'keepers' to be pretty satisfied.
