We moved the feeders a bit yesterday.

Tried a new lens today.

Getting a little closer, but the faster
shutter speed requires a higher ISO
speed and that makes for background noise.

Sure fun to watch these lil critters!

and only his family and
friends get to eat on this

Today I used a shutter speed of 1/2500 of a second to capture the wings. Perhaps a little faster would be better.

Or, perhaps a little slower speed would give us more of a motion effect.

I believe their wings beat at approximately 2000 beats per second. Is it a wonder they need so much sugar to survive?

Mama's resting after taking care of those babies.
Catching a bit of lunch and taking a breather while Dad feeds the babies.

Babies are eating from the feeders now too, so Mom gets a bit of a break.

Hand held at 1/80th second with my 55mm lens.
Taken today around noon.

Looking through some oldies, and here comes Fall.
Window reflection taken from afar in the Tahoe area.
Really looking forward to a trip to Yosemite and Tahoe this October.
