The R5 is definitely in good hands and what a beautiful capture of these two pretty little hummers. I love the way they're facing each other like two bookends with lovely symmetry.

A wonderful image, Cheryl- special capturing the pair. No other birds quite like Hummingbirds, in my view! I'm sure you are very pleased with your R5, and of course the 500mm EF, as well.

Great to have two in the frame, makes you wonder what their interaction is about, the flower is a beautiful perch for them. Enjoy your new R5!

Fantastic shot- great start with the R5! Love how they are facing off on the flower and all the dew drops.
