My first hummingbird shots. Late in the day. I tried for a better one today but none were seen although they drank a half inch of food while I was at church this morning. Taken with an FZ7 and an Oly C-180 tele converter.

I wasn't sure I could remove the purple from the eye and keep ths shine so I left it.


Sitting a moment.


Another flight shot

All threeare very good, but the middle one takes the cake in terms of overall clarity and composition. Great shots.

Thanks Raghu. It is easier to get clarity and composition when they are not moving. I wanted to try today and get that sharp with a moving target during the high sun hours where I could crank up the shutter speed. If only the birds had cooperated.

Thanks Sarah.

Prior to this year we have seen two hummingbirds in the yard in the last 30 years. This year there have been occasional ones, and I put up a feeder last week when one hovered by the ripe raspberries.

Nice. Nice. Nice. Great captures, Steve. I know we have more hummers than you, but they are very hard to capture good shots, as they rarely are motionless any length of time. Surprised they have not yet left your area, as they will soon be heading south.
