Hummingbirds of SE Arizona

Most of the shots at feeders were taken at Miller Canyon, most of those at flowers at Ash Canyon. There were many feeders at both spots but those at Ash were protected from raiding by nectar bats by large wire screens, making photography much more difficult. In addition, feeders were under dense tree cover and dark. Flash with a Better Beamer helped, but at the distances involved, underexposure was common.
