Unusual Hummer activities...

  1. Tried to catch a few hummers this weekend before they leave (about 2-3 more weeks).....many of these are out of focus but show some relatively rare type captures/activities so included them ( :redface: hope you don't mind)...all with 80-400VR @ ~350mm with two (2) SB800s

    Nice job Mike, showing some unusual shots. I've yet to get any decent ones of these guys. I need another SB-800. My best shots were underexposed at ISO 400, so they were too noisy. Maybe this weekend. :rolleyes:
     
  5. Thanks for the comments Frank....two flashes are just about a necessity...the closer the better (faster recycle/shorter duration)...I'm thinking about getting another one for a total of three... :Depressed

    Mike,

    I'd like to get another one, but for now my cam budget is zero (nada, zilch, squat :rolleyes:). Maybe in another month or so.... :frown:
