    Day after day the 40D just keeps on humming along.

    The temps today said low 90's, but with the low humidity it felt
    almost like Spring.
    I didn't even break a sweat as I stalked this bush for a half hour or
    so.
    And my patience was rewarded (for about 5 seconds anyway) by this
    visitor:

    Good thing the 40D was at the ready. Tripods are for wimps so I used
    my new $20,000 stabilizer for this shot. Mine happens to be made by
    Nissan.

    My old buddy, Spike, was also enjoying the mild temps as he worked on
    his personal grooming nearby:

    One of your best of Spike. The detail of his feathers is amazing.
    Love the pose of him grooming himself.

    Excellent work capturing the hummingbird. I especially like the way
    the wings are caught in motion, giving the viewer an idea of how fast
    those wings beat.
