    Don,

    Great job catching those hummers in flight. It is never bright enough in my yard for that, even at ISO 800. I did manage a few at my in-laws feeder in Phoenix.

    I went for my sometimes annual trek up to Roan High Knob for the blooming of the rhododendrons. This was the time I have gone when it was a total bust. It seemed that they had hardly any blooms at all this year. They bloomed a little early, but people I met hiking indicated there was not much even at the peak. So it was time for other subjects on the grassy bald.

    Thanks guys,

    Kgosden > is there not a spot you can move the feeder to with better light ?

    As you know, I'm always shooting into the sun so its a challenge to get good eye detail. I had thought about relocating the feeder and sitting around in a lawn chair but we have a bumper crop of mosquito's this year

    Cheers, Don

    Don,

    The only place I do not have shade most of the day is in the street. I cannot even grow grass in 90% of the yard. Sun would help the bird photos, but would mean grass and more mowing.

    Okay, have you thought about hanging a feeder outside a front window ?

    Actually my front is shadier than my back. Plus my front windows are 15 feet off the ground and don't open. Tough to maintain a feeder there.

    More North Carolina Hiking

    After giving up on Roan I went hunting waterfalls. It was tough as the skies were bright so most of the falls were very contrasty. I think I like this one better in portrait as here rather than the landscape version I posted in the Waterfall thread. I did play with the shadow/highlights tool on the upper half of the photo.
