Peter, Go to the missions page and search on both Global. There is also a mission for Birds of the World, and a mission for Best Wildlife Contest. You have to sign up to be on a mission and then you can choose up to 5 missions for a spotting, when you post the mission.

That's a good camera setup. How close were you to the hummingbird?

I have not heard of this, but I'm interested!

I use a nikon d5000 with a 300 mm lens

HeatherMiller 9 years ago

Yes...awesome detail! What lens are you using? Also- have you considered the Urban Diversity Mission?
