    Took a bunch more shots of my baby hummingbirds, and even caught a picture of them trying to fly for the first time. The one actually hovered for a moment! I don't think it'll be long before they start building secondary nests for themselves. :)  I'm pretty sure these are all with the FD 135mm f/2.

    Mama looking on:
    hummingbirds5.

    Scouting around:
    hummingbirds6.

    Testing the wings:
    hummingbirds7.

    First flight!
    hummingbirds8.

    Not content to watch his or her sibling grab the glory, the other baby tries it out:
    hummingbirds9.

    Relaxing after exhausting test flights:
    hummingbirds10.
