Yes, different location and a different bird from last year although it's still a green throated caribe, which you normally see on SXM. I took a lot of him and these were the best three.

You're welcome. Just realized I dumped my other bird <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/duh.gif" alt="" /> so have just replaced him with the newbie.

Awesome! Where did you capture the crested hummer? I got a poor shot of one in St. Bart's last year. I've already put feelers out to hubby to go back next year to see if I can get a better one; he is all for it. <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Joy.gif" alt="" />

"crested hummer" so that's what it is <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Grin.gif" alt="" /> it was taken from a St John villa that overlooks the Sir Francis Drake Channel.

Full name: Antillean Crested Hummingbird. They are found throughout the Caribbean. Haven't seen one on SXM yet, they may inhabit the higher reaches of the island.

We just love birds!! Hummingbirds are incredible little creatures. The SXM Zoo has some really nice bird exhibits.
You take some great pictures. What kind of camera do you use?

I have a Nikon D3100 camera (gift from hubby); was using a 70-300mm telephoto lens for the bird photos.

They're a great camera and I love using the telescopic lens for birds, flowers and animals. I can get to within a good shooting distance of my subject, without scaring them off.

I haven't used my telephoto much recently, haven't really made the time. I should.

I'm the opposite, I use mine most of the time. Hubby has a Nikon D800 and he wants to buy a new lens for it; he prefers my 70-300 mm for taking photos, so with the new lens we can compete with one another for the best shot. <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/jester.gif" alt="" />
