Thought I would share this... Went outside to snap a couple of the hummingbirds and caught this guy drinking from my feeder. C&C Welcome... as always, Enjoy!

Even with the 70-300mm, that is too close for comfort! Great shot.

Yeah, I was pretty close as these weren't cropped all that much. But this guy didn't care, he was very much pre-occupied!

Love the shot, but you wouldn't get me taking something like that - even with a 300mm lens!

inneyeseakay Sep 12, 2007 10:13 PM

Yeah... even with the 300mm in macro mode... It only gave me about 3ft of work space to get a 1:2 shot.

is this where the K10ds camera shake comes into play

counteracting thetremble ? :)

they turned out really well
maybe you can get some more tomorrow?

If they sting you Inn just put some chewing tobacco juice on it and forget it!! LOL

Really nice shots. This may be a dumb question but were these hand held shots? I'm just watching the forum, thinking about the K10D for my next camera.

Thanks guys...

Gumnut, If he's out there again, then I will definately try to snap some more. I love this lens. :)

Dawg, I was always told to put bleach on any stings... haven't heard about chewing tobacco juice... that's kinda gross. LOL

DonR, Yes all these shots were hand-held. I rarely use a tripod.

Awesome shots, Nick. Makes me wonder if I should have gotten the Sigma instead of the Tamron.
