    Hummingbird

    I sat with a tripod on my deck all afternoon yesterday. I use a Gitzo 3530LSV with a Wimberly head. I have three feeders in front of me and I spin to whatever one has the bird visiting. Each feeler has a Canon 580EXII Speedlight on a light stand controled by a TT5 Pocket Wizard on each (and a TT1 on the camera). I shoot manual mode and dial in for the proper exposure by trial and error. It usually takes a dozen shots at the birds to get the exposure exactly where I want it. I am about 17 feet from the feeders. I did not use the better beamers.

    I ended up with several shots I likes and posted a few on my site (under "last few months").
