The Elusive Hummers That Visit us

We put up a hummingbird feeder on our deck this year.  We also had some hanging baskets and were hoping that they would be attracted.  Initially, the plants were their focus but they soon decided that they liked the feeder too.  We could be sitting out there happily chatting away as the birds came and went.  However, if I brought the camera out, they suddenly become awfully shy.  Photos of a bit of a head or a wing behind the feeder were the norm.  The shutter sound also seems to have a negative effect.  However, I have got a couple of close attempts.  One day I shall devote some time to trying to get decent shots but I was more intent on enjoying the summer days than photographing the birds.
