  1. As you might have noticed, I just went on a liking spree… I would like every post because they are all amazing— but I refrained to only the ones I absolutely looooooved. Amazing photography, you have a new fan!

    • Hello Melody and welcome! I am really glad that you found my little space in the ether and hope to see you around again. 🙂

      This humming bird is something else isn’t it? I was just glad that I had the right lens at the right time. 🙂

  2. I have often heard you say that birds hate you and you can’t photograph them but this is another contrary image. Hummingbirds are wonderful bright jewels in our land of mostly small brown birds.

  3. This is so perfect! It has been a lifelong goal of mine to get a shot of a hummingbird! Love it love it love it

  4. I saw our first Hummingbird of the season at the feeder two days ago. What type of camera setup is required to try to capture an image like this?

    • Hello, thanks for stopping by to visit and comment!

      I was using my Canon 5d Mark III with a 70-200mm f/2.8L lens combined with a 2x teleconverter making the focal length 400mm for this particular shot. It was hand held as I had to lean over a porch railing to see the feeder! I knew I needed a high shutter speed to capture a “still” version of the humming bird, so set it at 1/4000 of a second. Hope this helps out a bit. 😀

      • Ok cool. I was assuming you had it set up on a tri-pod with a remote shutter release. I didn’t expect it to be a handheld shot.
