My granddad taught me a trick for catching little birds. You just take a salt-cellar and spread a little salt on the birds tail. Then it calms down completely. Have you tried that?:G

Hey Roy,

I just won this

At $7, nothing can go wrong. And I will try that remote and focus trap method for shooting birdie.

dan, don't you mean $13 w/s. that's how i look at it.

here's a couple from a tripod, release, 1/750 flash. a little better but still no cigar.

That is a good one showing quality work. Thanks for sharing. Up north (Toronto) we have a lot less variety of insects .

nice shot! for those hummer shots, did you use a flash? also if you could provide us with the camera settings that would be great. i have yet to catch my first "hummer."

royce, 4 posts up.. 1/750, f8, A300mm, flash using HSS, tripod and a cable release.
i need a longer release cable. need to ck my spare parts. also this is a manual focus lens BUT that's good. the flash goes to sleep and the camera does too. all it takes to activate both is a bump on the focus button on the remote..

this is a horrible pic but i guess i forgot how to use the fuji. no , just harsh conditions. i made a 25' extention for my cable release, set up the 500super and the DS with the vivitar 105 set at 1/500, f8, iso 200. problem hear is that they can hear the shutter fire and it spooks them. i've got the feeder and about 6'' either side focused. time will tell.
