Beautiful shots. Love both. Frame 'em and put 'em on your wall.

What lens, camera and shutter speed/ f-stop did you use?

wow buzzsaw. the hummer shot is simply spectacular. sharp as a tack and great color saturation. the lighting capture is quite impressive too. i wish we had more lightning storms here for me to photograph, but they are too few and far inbetween.

Thanks guys!

Lensmore, I use the Nikon D200 w/nNikkor 300mm F/2.8 attached the 1.4x TC (Nikon) had it on the Gitzo 1325 CF tripod being held on a RRS BH 55 ballhead and Wimberly sidekick...

My settings on the HB were: ISO 250 ~ 1/500 sec ~ F/8 ~ - 1/3 EV ~ Aperture priority (almost always) ~ matrix metering.

The night shot I switched to manual mode and took a long exposure of about 25 seconds.

I've posted a ton of pics on my Pbase acct, feel free to go here: http://www.pbase.com/mike_lentzand just click on any of the galleries and it will open up to alot more pictures... you can see alot of the settings I used here as well.

Thanks for looking.

Mike :-)

Absolutely top notch - you need to have those shots framed and hang them on your wall!

I would be very proud if I took them!

They are all exceptionally good. The 300mm big gun is really fantastic here. The right gear in the right person's hand, I have to say. Seen the link at Pbase. Post more here and thereto widen our horizon.
