Thanks Cindy and thanks Riften for the suggestion. I'm not quite sure as the range doesn't fit.

Beautiful series, Dan!

Thanks cheryl and Manugreenbooklover. This bird was resting at the time so it was easier to photograph but to be honest, I just put my camera on 'sports' mode to try and capture hummingbirds in flight. I take a lot of pics and hope a few of them come out in focus.
