  2. Hey Keith, great shots, was it the 70-200VR and the 500D? You've got to get within two feet with that combo, your the man.
  3. Thanks Pete, yes it was that combo. My cheap way of doing micro ;-)
  4. Just incredible Would love to give your setup a try at my place just hung two feeders so hopefully in a few weeks they start showing up
  5. Okay, give. how in the heck do you get within two feet of a hummer and have it pose for you?

    Really well done Keith :lol:
  6. Hi Mike

    It is an easy set up, cant go wrong. Try buying some color paper and paint your background, if you dont and you shoot, many times you will have a black background as your lightset up is brighter than the ambient light. Those shots are cool to!

    Let me know when they show up, sure wish we had them around here, the entertainment value alone is fun, and boy are they small. LOL
  7. Thanks Rory...

    I just rented a large hummer outfit :wink: After 3 days of being one on one with them, they just got use to me. Day 1 and 2 not a chance............got to luv it when a plan comes together :lol:
  8. all right, now I give. WTH is a huge hummer outfit? I can only imagine renting one of thos machines you get in that is full of money blown around...... except with hummers of course.... :^)

    Nice shots, Keith! I have never had much luck with the hummers. They are so mean to each other around here that they spend all of their time chasing the others away.

    Anyway, it's past season now in Houston, so I think I need to take the feeders down.

  10. Hi Dave......
