Thanks so much, I'm glad that you can appreciate that as it is very difficult to get pictures of these tiny guys, especially with only a 200mm lens!

I would LOVE to have humming birds come around my house. They are hard to attract here for some reason! The closest thing I've seen is a Hummingbird Moth!!

I think there's just too much to compete with on the internet. I think someone would be better off selling locally, but I'm thinking you already or are trying that.
