Hummer

Well I decided a few weeks ago that I want to take some humming bird photos. So I bought a humming bird feeder and didnt really think anything would happen. Then about 2 weeks ago we started seeing them. So I bought another feeder. Now we are getting them pretty regular like. One shows up every 10-20 minutes. SO now it is time to start photographing them. Lesson #1 - they are scared of the sound of the shutter so back up the camera far and use a remote. Lesson #2 - 1000 isn't fast enough. Lesson #3 - 1250 isnt much better. SO nothing good so far. then today in this cloudy crappy weather one decided to sit on the feeder post and hang out so I took 2 photos. While they are not great I will figure it out sooner or later...

Re: Hummer

I had it that high because today was the first day she was landing. Prior to that they have just flown around. I have the camera on a tripod and am using a remote release. I may try to sit in the yard with the camera tomorrow night.

Re: Hummer

I think his Pro body(Full Frame) can handle the high ISO. I'm sure it can handle it a lot better then that 50D!

You don't have much time on the Hummer soon they will be gone.

Mike Bones(I Think his name is) Is the best at shoothing hummers I would ask him for help if you need it. I know he is on Wildlife south a lot, but I'm thinking he on the Refuge as well.
