They are pretty close to making they way south and the feeders were empty so the kitchen closed.
The skeeters were horrendous this year so I didn't spend as much time with the big lens out there. But these are the best of the best for now.

BTW Vaughn's post got me looking back

Awesome shots. I can't get real close right now, they seem much more skittish than last year. And all I have is a 55-300 zoom, and it's not white;-)

I have found that I get better shots when manually focusing. I'm looking for a 400mm manual to get me a bit closer without having to mortgage the house.

I always leave a feeder up until December because post-migration there is always the chance of an off course migrant oddball species. Midwesterners and Easterners often turn up western species in October and November.

I was in our garage last week. Garage door was open. I heard a loud buzzing sound (like a bumble bee, but louder). I looked up and a hummingbird was at eye level with me and so close I could have reached out and touched it. I was afraid it would get trapped in our garage so I just put one of my hands up so it would see me. It scooted out of the garage, hovered a moment then was gone. When my mom was ill with cancer she took a lot of photos from her living room of the hummingbirds that lingered outside her window. She grew very fond of them. She has a hummingbird inscribed on her grave marker, that was specially made for her. Each I see a hummingbird I think of my mom.

As I grow older little things trigger memories for me. Life is definitely too short.
