    Poor little things. I'd ask an expert on what to do Jim. I would
    hate to see the neighbourhood cat grab any of them.
    Very nice shots Jim. The color and detail are great.

    It appears after watching for a bit; that it is the juvenile males that are
    on the ground. I suspect that the older males are driving the younger off
    the feeders. So if a juvenile male makes it to the feeder he fills up,
    err... overfills a bit. The whole thing is a bit odd as I have consistently
    seen all ten holes on a feeder occupied.

    The expert would tell me to put out more feeders or not feed them. There
    are no neighborhood cats as the coyotes have eaten them or their owners keep
    them inside now because of the coyotes. But there are plenty of other
    things that would eat them.

    I love the little eyelash feathers.

    "But there are plenty of other things that would eat them."

    That's true. I read where someone saw a praying mantis eat one.
    Aww. :eek:(

    Looks like a row of bumps/warts on the lower eyelid,
    am I seeing that right?

    On a slightly more serious note, I was reading where some of the larger
    robber flies have taken down hummers.

    The pic is technically and compositionally very good, but I can't bear
    to view it. It's too grim and heartbreaking for me.
    What can I say, my heart is too tender.

    It's ok that one is a fake, and is clearly labeled as such.

    Damn! Am I embarrassed! I was so shocked by the gruesome pic I
    didn't bother scrolling down to read any data. Sorry Jim. My
    mistake. But it's a great PS job!
