Bob,
Great shots of the humming birds.
I might have to steal them for my own personal gratification.
Thank you for sharing them

First deer I've actually seen in our area, although there have been signs for quite some time - my wife's flowers eaten, "deposits" in the back yard, hoofprints in the garden.

Nice shot Bob...looks like one of my "locals" that wanders on our couple acres ......This guy tried to attack me while shooting the picture....

Just kidding.....these guys usually dont bother you other than a loud "buzzz-by"...Was having fun with my new Sigma 105mm macro 1:1 lens....I have a lot to learn yet.....

I've been working at a residence next to a sizable pond and with all sorts of wildlife, including turkeys, wood ducks, swans and geese, etc.

And there's a Great Blue Heron that spends a lot of time there. Makes a lot of squawking when it lands.

I took this photo from about 200 yards away with the camera on full zoom (12x) and NO tripod. The Canon S3 has Image Stabilization which worked like a charm, as you can see.

While the squirrels in our backyard are usually quite active, I watched this guy settling down and taking a nap a few days ago:

A few more weekend critters from our back yard.

This is a male downy woodpecker, the red slash on its head identifies it as a male.
Checking out our feeder for some sunflower seeds. I watched it peck at an adjacent tree, assumed it was looking for insects.
But following it from the feeder, I realised it was pecking at the seeds to open them!






This is his female companion, the first one I've seen in our area:





I took these with my Canon SX30IS, a "bridge" camera with built in 35X zoom,
taken at the equivalent of 840mm on a film camera.
The image stabilisation works well at these focal lengths.

Don't think that's a sparrow. If you look at the feeder on the left in the bottom tray, that's a sparrow (what we call and English
sparrow).
The white one is larger and has a longer bill. We need an ornithologist here.

Mother was in the front yard the other day with two chicks, but you can only see one here.
Usually there are six to eight but with the coyotes around here, she's lucky to still have two.




And here's a good one of her. The chicks are there but hidden by her body.

Spotted this strange insect at the flowers, going from each one gathering nectar.
At first glance I though it was a bumble bee, but then it was obviously too large. And that tail wasn't right either.
I don't know what this is so any info would be helpful.





Is this some sort of moth???

The picture is a little fuzzy Dave, but I'd say it's a hummingbird moth. I've seen them in our wild flower garden that surrounds my flag pole and big rock.
