    Baby hummingbirds outside my window. Boy are these guys tiny.

    Bunch of different lenses here, all on the GH2 (and all various levels of cropping).

    This is with the Canon FD 135mm f/2 and a cheap FD Tamron 2x TC, close to full frame:


    This is with the Minolta MD 135mm f/2.8, very heavily cropped (about 85%):

    And these two are with the cheap-o Kalimar 80-200mm f/4.5-5.6 at 200mm wide open, both about a 50% crop, so quite heavily cropped:
    Got the mommy feeding:

    Great pictures! How lucky to have them outside your window and interesting to see that they really do reinforce their nests with spiders webs.
