After observing hummingbirds for some time, I realise that they are relatively easy to take due to it's predictability. It's a pity that I was not able to find an angle where the wire mesh in the background can't be seen. I shot all these at ISO400 which showed up with quite a bit of noise.. only after that I realised that I don't need to shoot at ISO400 with these shots..

This is the Sparkling Violet-Ear, the most active of those I knew





Oh, the bird keepers told me that new species of hummingbirds will arrive in 2 weeks.. I can't wait... :)

Ya... I know.. wished they could open the gate at the back.. but it was there to prevent the hummingbird in front to mingle with the one at the back else they would fight... :(
