    wdlove posted that picture in the picture association thread. Don't think he copied the URL properly so the previous URL was pasted here instead. Hopefully we'll get the correct URL because I really want to see what he's talking about :)

    Wow, 1/2" eggs. Now that's small. Really shows how small the nest is. I wonder how the babies look at that size?

    Thanks for posting, wdlove.

    That's amazing to even locate a hummingbird nest let alone track it as you did. Great pics. Those are Rufous Hummingbirds . Where do you live? We live in north, central Mississippi, and we have Ruby Throated Hummingbirds, but my mother has spotted a Rufous at her feeder recently. Thanks for the pics!


    EDIT: p.s. here's a pic my brother took. He takes some great nature pics, I just wish he'd pursue it further as far as publishing and selling his work.

    I saw this in an email my aunt sent me a few weeks ago, still just as impressive.

    iSaint--your brother's hummingbird picture is really good. They are so difficult to capture in flight or still. This is to encourage him, along with your encouragement, to continue to use and market his skill. There are not very many nature and wildlife photographers compared to other specialties.

    Thanks, wdlove for the photo url. It was both a testimony for natural wonders and long telephoto lenses.

    wdlove, I love the picture that establishes the size context!!! Haha, that toothpick and penny look ginormous! I once held a hummingbird (a trained animal specialist had found one that was stunned) that tiny thing felt like it weighed less than a piece of paper. :eek:

    Thank you for the nice comment devilot76. ;) I envy you of your experience. It sounds as though it was a fantastic experience. Was the hummingbird able to recovery fully? Any pictures?

    After waking up to this thread, I have a hankering for some omelettes.

    Haha, this was on some nature-type field trip when I was in... the 3rd or 4th grade, so no, no pics. :eek: But yes, the bird was fine after a few seconds-- only a few of us closer to the front were lucky enough to get the opportunity to hold or lightly pet the feathers. :D
