A few shots of some Hummers

7 posts in this topic

My plan was to put out a flower and get the little buggers to drink out of it but I did not realize that the type of flower I want is not carried by the flower shops in Cloquet. I did get a few to come in but it was the feeder the they wanted not the flower that I picked up. When I find the right flowers I will use a flash to stop the wings because even at 1/2000 of a second your only slowing these guys down grin

Very nice collection of pleasing natural light hummer images. You are blessed to have this opportunity in your yard.

Nice series. It was August 20 last year when I got my first hummer shots. 1/3200/sec. seemed to do the trick on the wings.

Jim, that 4th shot is just amazing! The color might be distorted somewhat but the capture in flight and eye contact just makes it look so natural. Nice work!
