Strong Meteor Shower Expected Tonight - Yahoo! News
Could make for some neat photos if anyone has the gear/energy/time to take these pictures.

These guys are right in the yard so it's fun when I get bored

A dismal attempt at catching the Perseid shower (there are two visible). I set the exposure for what I thought it would be at around 10:00pm, set the camera up at 8:00, 30 sec exposure with the shutter locked down. Unfortunately the camera ran out of battery at 9:30. When I look through the single shots though I think I caught a few satellites (to dim to show up in the composite)

Very nice pics of the hummer, I like your lighting setup. I am wondering though what your processing routine is though, it seems like a lot of noise for ISO 400. Remote shutter release (via pocket wizards)?

They are grainy because they came out dark and I had to really pull them from the murk. Thanks to RAW I was able to get them but limited size etc. and lots of noise I'm still working on the exposures etc.

People sure love hummingbirds, look at all the comments/awards in one day on flickr.
