Default Are you tired of my hummers? (FZ150)

A few from last week with my FZ150. The orange and green one is an Allen's H-bird, the one with dark or pink head is an Anna's H-bird (the head turns bright pink when the sun hits it just right).

Wonderful shots all, Saly! #3 is amazing. So lucky you are to live in a place where nature abounds.

To answer your question in the title: NO!

Stunning pics, ... again. You must be shooting very fast shutter speed. I do not see multiple images of the flapping wings. Do you know cycle speed of their wings when hovering?

I have never had the opportunity to shoot humming birds. Getting focus must be difficult, unless they repeat their visit to one location.

Thanks for sharing these great images.

G'day Saly

Like Roger [& others no doubt] ..... NO !!!!!!!!!
I am in awe of these images ... 12/10 without doubt

I don't know whether we have these birds in Aussie land - if so I've never seen them
All our birds are so flighty that as soon as I/you try to get close, they're off into another tree or bush or whatever. So for you to get these is wonderful stuff

Regards, Phil

Thank you Raghu, Roger, Jim, CrazyTechie, Phil and Simon! They were so busy feeding and protecting their territory so they mostly ignored me as long as I stood still.

Roger - I was in P mode with ISO set to 200. The shutter speed ended up around 1/1000.
