Wow, great capture Janet!!
Thank you Marvin – much appreciated.
Fabulous shot, Janet, using multiple flash. The bird is beautiful, and so is the background.
Thank you David – your comments are always very much appreciated.
Wow, this is fabulous! So clear!
Thanks Dot – I was using a 300 prime lens and when you get it right – it is sharp!
Superb capture Janet.
Thank you John!
Thank you Kymie – much appreciated.
Fabulous!!! I loooove hummingbirds and the hummingbird was the first of the medicine wheel images I did…bravo on a fabulous capture!
I love them too. They are one of the most interesting birds that I have seen to watch their behavior. Glad you like it.
Very, very nice… something I am yet to achieve :(
I am glad you like it!
A tremendous shot. I was wondering if you would be kind enough to tell me what lens you used and if you did any cropping. A definite fave.
Certainly! I used a Canon 5D Mark II (fast burst is not important when shooting hummingbirds) and a Canon 300mm 2.8L lens. I used 4 high speed flashes set to 1/16 power. The high speed flash is necessary in order to freeze the bird in flight. One flash was used to light up the background, one flash used to light up the bird gorget and the other two to capture both sides of the bird. I used very little cropping as I was sitting about 10 feet from the feeder. I was shooting 1/200 sec at f/11, ISO 100.
Thank you so much!
