Oops, I forgot. Woodmiester, please, at approx. what distances did you make these shots. Any idea how far out your flash might be good for? I have been thinking about trying flash for fill, but have no idea if it would be useful say beyond 15 or 20'.

Any help please. Also I read something about a beamer. Is this something useful for this purpose?

Thanks guys for being there.

Golfer flash range depends on the flashes zoom setting and the cameras ISO setting.

The 420ex at the 105mm setting has a Guide Number 138 feet @ ISO 100, and at the 35mm seting it is G.N. 101 feet @ ISO100.
The 580ex at the 105mm setting has a guide number 190 feet @ ISO 100.

You can also greately extend a flashes range by using products like the
Project-A-Flash and BetterBeamer

The squirrel was at about 30 feet away, give or take, and the sparrow was
about 12-15 feet away, if I remember correctly.

Great Kinglet shot. I'm jealous, I haven't gotten a shot or even seen one of these yet.
