I'm determined to keep after the Humming Bird that visits the feeder. Thanks to all your feedback in the past, the pictures are getting better...I think! I used my Pentax 50-200mm lens, ISO 800, and shutter speed of 1/500th of a sec with the High Speed Sync mode on my Sigma 500DG Super flash.

You certainly has passed the initial stage with flying color. Job well done. Impeccable shot.

Ha Ha Ha!! :lol:

My next experiment is to move the feeder into direct sun so I can use a smaller apperture and therefore get a bit more depth of field which I think should achieve crisp focus. I have learned a lot from this forum! Jay

Wow! What a fantastic shot! I too have taken some hummer photos with my 50-200mm DA lens, but unfortunately through a dirty window so my shots aren't as nice as yours. Guess I better clean the window! But that 50-200mm DA lens certainly does do a good job. I love it.

Excellent shot, Jay! I tried getting a couple this w/e when we were at a winery. There was about 10 of them hitting off of 1 feeder. I grabbed the dl luckily I already had my 70-300 on it but(meanwhile back to reality) I left the tripod at the cabin that we were staying at. I had too much shuttershake to have anything worth posting!:sad::sad::sad::sad::sad:

THanks for the post & making me feel better!

Ron
