Still not the quality I'd like butt getting better.
Keep at it Troy,at least you have hummer shot to post.They have not been around my house this year,heard they are small in numbers this year.As long as they are around there are more chances for that great shot:smile:
Thanks for looking Tim. They do'nt hold still very long.
Not an easy target Troy, so just getting one is a step in the right direction. Keep it up and you'll get there. :smile:
I'm lucky... I've got hummingbird at our cottage
I'm still a novice at photo. We got a bunch of hummingbird hanging around at the cottage. I did read the post on how to shot picture of hummingbird and did some test. I'm pretty happy with the result...

Very, very good pictures.
You are really close to a great shot here.
MY recommendation would be:
1. Use flash to stop the motion of the Hummer, and in this case against the light expose the bird correctly.
2. LOWER the shutter speed to 1/250 and set aperture to F8 or so, it is the flash that freezes the motion of the bird. YOu need more DOF.
Andreas, Thanks for the input. I must get over the fact that just because I'm outside in good light that a flash still has a place.
