Despite cooler weather even in Southern California, these Allen's Hummingbirds still like being in the water.

Hi John....thanks for the nice comment. I was about 5 feet or so away. When I first set up, the hummers stayed away because I was present. But eventually they swooped in, but remained a little cautious. Once they realized I was not a threat, they came and went. I've done this many times. They can actually be quite inquisitive. I have had them get within inches of my face, just hovering and looking at me. Then they zip off. I really enjoy photographing them....they have a lot of personality.
