Fabulous capture Rick. Details of the shot?
Nice one Rick. Those critters will test your skills.
Great detail! Something that is not an easy thing to do. Well done.
Magnificent. I know better than to even try. We had some transients back in April. September and October are our big times of the year.
Thanks! Sorry, forgot to include that. Shot from my porch, this was with my D850 and 300mm f/2.8 lens, on a tripod, iso 500, f/2.8, 1/5000 sec, AFC, group.
I just discovered the post “how to setup for hummingbirds”. Using multiple flashes seems like a great idea, Keith got some beautiful images with his setup. I only have one flash and have no idea how to use it, it’s a complicated thing with a very poorly written manual. I described myself trying to use it once as “looking like Owen Wilson and Ben Stiller trying to get the files out of the Mac in Zoolander”, I was madly pushing buttons and changing camera settings with no apparent impact on the flash working.
I’m going to have to do more reading on this humming bird thing.
Rick you really did a great job in catching this. I really like the wing position. Now if it were next to a colorful flower it would be hard to beat.
Really nice shot and excellent feather details!
I actually prefer to shoot hummers without flash as much as possible. Easier for me and more natural looking.
This entire gallery was shot without flash.
Thanks for the tip Karen, I think I'll keep doing it minus the flash.
About half of those images were taken with the D850. Check out the ISO's! LOL! It was generally heavy overcast.....light drizzle!!! A shutter speed of 1/3200 was fine.
Very well done Rick.
Excellent capture Rick.
hey a very nice shot and catch...............
