Well, I photographed my first hummingbird of the summer today.
Boy, are they ever scarce around here. Used my old H2.
400 mm @sp 1/500th. Wish I had used a bit faster shutter
to stop the wings though.... Jim

OK, cb401. Nice shot. It lookslike yours is same
species as mine. (Ruby throat). Yes, it takes about
1/1000 sec to stop the wings. I did it last year but
haven't seen many this summer. Still looking though.

Well, Jim, I did manage to get one shot with the wings stopped:-). Photo is very enlarged with some loss of detail.

Hi cb401. Nice setting shot of the hummingbird. I am going to
try a different camera today and try to get one at rest also.
They are pretty active here right now so should be able to do it.

Ok Cyber, well, they re pretty active right now here in central Illinois. Just one species but I can see them everyday. I have more time than anything else, so I set
on my patio and watch my three feeders. Exciting, huh? Jim
