Well it was a good thing that I carried my camera with me:biggrin: He had one of the tamest Male hummer that I have ever seen. How close did I get...as close as a 70-300mm VR lens will let you get...about 5 feet. After I was done..according to the bird he treated me with a hummingbird flyby. :wink: Enjoy and as always CC welcome. 1. 15-20 feet above me 2. Closer to eye level..with on board flash:biggrin: 3. Couldn't decide if I wanted flash or not same area as above..I had to PP the dickens out of it... 4. Yeah flash is the best. And finally just to objectively test the D300..Same image starting at near straight out of the camera and going until you can see the cloud in it's eye...How close do you want to get to a hummer::biggrin: 5. Close and my favorite: 6. But just to see the detail I decided to get a closer crop: 7. :biggrin: And finally is it just me or is that a cloud in the sky: There was a point that it had it's tongue sticking out...but I missed it.:frown: Oh well maybe next time.
