Amazing what you can see in the blink of an eye!

DL + Sigma 70-300 DG APO...through my kitchen window.

That is so cute, Jay. Is he really sleeping? Or, did you catch him with his eyes closed? Hope he can hang on while he sleeps.

Any time you can get a hummingbird that still and that clear, you deserve some sort of prize!

Thanks all!

Patty & GW: She does look like she's dozing...or perhaps meditating, doesn't she? :sleep:

Actually she was in her regular feeding routine. It so happened thatthe shutter was faster than the blink of her eye.

Tom & Glenn: I was pleasantly surprised at the sharpness especially considering that I took it through the kitchen window (guess I have a cleankitchen windowat that:lol. At about 280mm. the Sigma 70-300 DG APO delivers a crisp image!

I agree, That is a great lens, but it really doesn't account for the timing on this shot...
Simply put: PERFECT :|
