Kieth, these are great as usual! Was this a single flash or multiple? if single was it shoe mounted or offset?

Were they just to close to get the whole bird in or is it that they will not fit using the 500D?

Talk about some Fantastic shots!!! I can tell your time was well spent on your trip to photograph these little guys! I'm just glad the bear didn't eat you and you were able to come back to share these with us!

these particular 2 pictures were done with a single flash believe it or not. It was mounted on shoe and natural backgrounds. If shooting with background, I like to use the stroboframe to get it off the camera so it wont cast shadows, but if your lighting up the background with a speedlight, doesnt matter at all whether on or off......

thanks for looking Greg!

Nice close-ups keith, I still can't believe how close you could get.

I see there is a bit ghosting was there sunlight in those pictures?

They are really nice backgrounds, thats a pretty excluse style of Hummingbird photography your developing, close-up, hand held, natural backgrounds.
