Rented a camp on the lake for a week. ( Family gathering/bonding time )

Many places had Hummingbird feeders, including ours, so I tried some high shutter speed stuff.







waited all week for this guy:

love the last shot, shes clearly sticking her tongue out at you! great shots, I love hummingbirds...a lot of my gardens are built around plants to pull them in, and we have feeders as well, this summer we've got atleast 8 coming to the yard on a daily basis.

good ones Mike, hummingbirds are challenging to take pistures of. Too bad it was not on natural flowers though.

I tried but with a feeder on every lawn, they visited flowers too infrequently.

Thought about cropping the feeders out, but for a first time I was pleased.

Next time better tripod, I had a light cheap one.
Hopefully a remote for the shutter and real flowers for sure.
