Up Close

Camera:
Canon EOS 40-D
Location:
Rockland, Idaho
 
United States of America

Photographer Notes:
I went on a hummingbird banding trip this year as I usually do every year, but this was the first time with my canon 40D. I loved all the pictures but this one taken with a fixed canon 50mm lens with a quantaray 10x close up lens was on the top of my favs list. So, I hope you guys enjoy this and like it as much as I do.

Wow, thank you guys for all your kind kind comments. I am currently at a conference at Big sky Montana and just got to see this win. Thanks PV for picking this shot as a winner. thank you all for your kind comments again. Connie, Humming bird banding is done anywhere on there migration paths at different times of the year. Suzanne, they catch them using cages with rope controlled drop doors and Linda, this banding was at Rockland, ID. It happens there every year on the memorial day weekend (I think two days

magnificent close up view, really like it. Those bands must be very small.
