I love these tiny birds and here you have a beauty, so elegant with its green iridescent coat!

So you have seduction to bring them in, Peter! But you took this when it was resting nearby on the branch.

.....and or a blind?

Thank you Wolfgang. Yes Asher I have a branch fixed near the feeder. I can't think of anything more unappealing than hummingbird imaged with bright red feeders included. No blind necessary. You can stand right next to them when they're feeding. They know very well you can't catch them. Some people train them to alight on their fingers but that doesn't interest me. Just photos.

Have you ever caught them feeding on insects. That's their real job!

Haven´t caught them on camera but I´ve certainly seen them catching insects in flight.
