Default Hummingbirds Return

Maybe spring really has come. Our pair of hummingbirds has returned to the garden. It takes a lot shots to get these buggers. Kx, Tamron 18-250.

Hi pboerger,

These guys are thin in my portfolio. We only have Ruby Throated ones here in the Midwest, and though I have a good place to shoot them, I've yet to get the hang of how to consistently shoot them to show their colors at their best. I've recently gotten a couple of slave flashes, so I'm hoping to get some opportunities to experiment again soon.

Nice job!

Nice going, pboerger.
I haven't ever seen any around here so, I haven't had a chance to try a shot at them.
Maybe someday...

I've been having mixed results in posting and getting sharpness. I think I overdid it here.

More than nice shots, I think I would spend a lot of time getting pictures of them , if we had them .
