    Here's one (heavy crop) from 2012, shot in my back yard at dusk with an off camera SB-800. D7000 w/70-300. Lucky shot in catching his tongue sticking out.

    Re: Post your Hummingbird Photos

    So I googled if we get humming birds here in New Zealand and apparently we don't. Problem solved and removed from list but ….

    in my search I found this.

    "Another tip on hummingbird feeders is to always have more than one and to place them away from each other, preferably out of sight of one another. Hummingbirds are extremely territorial when it comes to nectar sources, and, odds are, if you only have a single feeder out you'll only have a single hummingbird--which of course limits your chances of spotting one. Also, as mentioned above, hummingbirds are attracted to bright colours, specifically reds. A number of our seed feeders are suspended from a Birch tree by steel cables coated in red plastic (the kind that people use to teather their dogs out in the yard.) They're maybe a quarter inch thick and not particularily noticable, but the hummingbirds always fly right up to them to check them out. Amusingly enough, I also dye my hair a burgundy colour that looks bright red in the sun, and I often have hummers zip right up to investigate when I'm out working in the garden.'

    Dedication or crazy? Burgundy hair … LOL

    I hate to mention it but the reason that wev's hummers may shy from his camera is that they think it is a collection devise and that he is going to capture and stuff them and add them to his collection. But don't mention that to him as he is sensitive on that point. But if you wanted a hummingbird in New Zealand perhaps he could send you one. You could astound the local nature community with the first photo of a hummingbird in New Zealand. Think of the possibilities.

    The plain stuffed ones are quite reasonably priced. The fully articulated versions with the titanium skeleton frame and micro servos, now those will cost ya.

    I would have thought hummingbirds would be about everywhere in the world almost. Strange that NZ has none.

    They probably got better stuff, they just don't want us to know about it.

    They are new world birds and are, within the natural system, confined to North and South America.

    I just created it last night after perusing some of your shots in one of your hummingbird threads. I didn't want to put my scrap in there with yours!

    Would you post up some tips and advice on finding good hummingbird sites and what times of day are best for shooting them?
