Dam I need a gunner machine. Lag is really starting to bother me ... GRRRR

Great shots.. Beautiful images.

That is just incredible. I believe you have just set the bar real high..

Kind of a RR Flip.

Gotta have a new flip name now. Ok Ideas anyone.

Top that.

WOW! Nice series.

Now if you could just zoom in on that insect so I can see its eye's and the shock of the hummer picking him off in flight. Little bug is just not having a good day. :wink:

Wow! Very cool captures, Ben. I like #3 with the bug and #4 because of the non-sky bg. I have 3 suggestions for you.

1. All the images seem to have a halo around the subject. I'm guessing that you used the shadow highlight tool in PS and that is what is causing the halo. The halos can be avoided by selecting just the subject and then use shadow highlight on the subject only.
2. If you shoot in manual mode for flight shots it will allow you to maintain proper exposure as your subject moves accros differing bgs. This is true as long as the light remians the same as your subject moves.
3. I think the shots would be more interesting if they were cropped a little tighter to show more details in your subject.

I hope these suggestions help.
