Caught this little one yesterday, shot setting was F/13, ISO 400, 1/200 sec with onboard flash (not good enough to "freeze" the wings momevent), distance was 12 feet @ 500 mm.

Tried to catch him at F/14 to get more details in DOF, no luck



Cheers everyone

That's a great photo, I was watching the birds in my garden this morning and they were never still. You must have great patience. :-)

Outstanding!

You're going to need a very fast shutter I think. 1/30 perhaps? Or am I talking poop? :-)

the shutter eric used is 1/200 as he says above. 1/30 is a little slow.

Thanks Vito, Ferny and Jack Yes I was on another forum and I was told to go the other way around. They mentioned 1/1250 sec was the sweetspot

Well, then I'll eat some worms. Keep those slow-moving robins company.

On a more serious (and less disgusting) note, I think my 300mm lens just isn't going to do it, not unless I take down the screen on the windowin front of whichthe hummingbird feeder hangs. I guess that means I'll have to wash the window.

What size lens are you using?
