    A couple hummers......................

    Spent a couple hours this morning with the hummingbirds. Not seeing as many as i would like, but a few are showing up at the feeders. These were shot with a single flash, bounced off a homemade flash card. (chinete paper plate). Flash was mounted on a tripod and positioned 2 feet from the feeder. Set to manual mode---high speed sync---1/4 power---24mm

    Great photos. Congratulations!
    I assume the camera was handheld. Were you well hidden or were the birds not overly concerned?

    Thanks bruce, i usually sit inside a ground blind. If you spend alot of time around your feeders, they will get used to you, but if not, a blind works really well.

    I used my tripod with my flash, so i put the monopod on the camera, for a little extra support.
