The red coloring is not needed and is usually sold by the feeder makers to enhance their bottom line. I use 4 parts water to 1 part sugar and it works very well. I have 5 feeders up at this time and somewhere in the neighborhood of 12-15 birds feeding from them.

Had it been hurt or just exhausted from trying to get out of an enclosure? You must have been awfully quick with your camera. I've been able to hold one for a few seconds after it flew through the open camper door and went to the shower skylight. After being able to corner it and get ahold of it when I took it outside it sat in my hand for just a couple of seconds or so before zipping off. Amazing how light they are. Great Picture.

All depends on if you're trying to catch the wings in still or if you don't care. I could shoot pictures of them all day around here since every other trailer in the park has feeders for them and we get them in droves when the weathers right.

I found him unconscious in my driveway while I was cleaning my old truck camper. I think he hit it and knocked himself out. I thought he was dead at first but when he began to revive I handed him to my wife and grabbed the camera. I managed to get that one shot before he took off. It was pretty amazing and yeah, they are incredibly light and fast!

Between the hummingbirds and Baltimore Orioles I will have to refill each feeder once a day, especially in June and early July. Thats five feeders a day! The Orioles have a big appetite.
