I know you have seen a bunch of hummingbird photos from me lately....but I find them to be a challenge to photograph and therefore finding it quite fun to snap pictures.
For those of you who like to play with the manual settings of a camera...these were taken on a very cloudy day here in BC.
I took them with quite a high ISO (1600) hence they are a bit grainy. I did this so that I could possibly capture the wings still. This means I had to have a very fast shutter speed 1/3200 and a low F-stop 1.8 to let enough light into my lens.
I think I will try again on a brighter day so that I don't have to have a high ISO.
These are also shot through a pane of glass (my kitchen window) which also adds a dimension of "trickiness".
ETA....I got him! Lowered my ISO and got in a little closer!
