Nature at Spring Arbor Lake
Part 2 - Carbondale, Illinois

Difficult to photograph on a very dark-cloudy day, this lone Hummingbird is
guarding the territory of two feeders. The distance was about 35 feet and
raining at the time.

Here we were able to get within 10 feet of the feeders, while twelve Hummingbirds
competed for positions on one feeder.

The latter two photographs were taken with our Olympus C-180 teleconverter removed from a C-2100UZ,
which enabled a view of several Hummingbirds fighting for positions on one feeder.
