    Default Hummingbird collection

    Wow, these guys really cooperated this evening. The cool thing was watching the adult escort the youngsters to the feeder. These guys are only about an inch tall. Papa, with the bright red throat, didn't stay long enough for a photo, he just kept bringing the kids by, and kept right on moving.

    I really need to get the 50-200. The kit lenses have a very hard time hitting the focus on these twitchy rascals.









    E510, 40-150mm kit lens
    ISO 800
    most @ f/8
    all hand held, #3, 1/80sec , IS=
    C&C welcome
    Thanks

    Great shots!! I am in Alaska, surrounded by these little guys and have only managed a couple of good shots...but, I am still working on them!!!

    Limited network connection (satellite) so not posting many pics right now, but soon.

    Anyways, love the shots...

    Enjoy,

    Jim

    Great images especially #3. I never tire of hummer photos as there are none in Australia.

    About 5-6 feet
    To be fair, all of these are cropped way heavy, like about 70%
    So, at least I know my camera works if I do my part

    Amazing little creatures. You'd think that the vibration from the rapid motion of their wings would just about scramble their thoughts.
    Good shooting,
