A few of this year's hummingbird crop
 
These birds keep me busy when they are around. This is a few that I picked out of at least a couple hundred taken this fall. Will have to be more than one post since I picked out 18 shots.
:D

Thanks guys for the comments.

Dru settings are different on them all. If you have an EXIF extension reader in your browser the settings will show at the top of the photo when you place the cursor over the shot.

Great shots, Bill. I miss shooting them myself!

You've gotten some fantastic hummingbird shots this year, Bill! I've really enjoyed seeing many of them along the way, but it's great to see them together on a thread like this as well.

Tomkat70 10-04-2017 09:01 AM

Beautiful pics, thanks for sharing.

Thank you David. It's been fun shooting them. More hummingbird plants than I have ever had in the yard. Still one I would like to catch them on, coral honeysuckle. I think they may leave before I do though. It was tough picking these few.

Amazing shots. You are obviously talented.

Thanks. I think yours are fine. Need to set up opportunities for these kind of shots. All the plants shown except for the Turk's Cap are in pots on my patio. I hide a little and get far enough away for the lens to be able to focus.

Great shots, you never disappoint with your bird pictures.

Are you using remote flashes to brighten them up? I made a pathetic attempt at getting some pics of all the hummers we had this year, that’s when I realized I needed a couple flashes set up to get the right lighting to make them really show their colors.

Thanks for your comments.

No I don't use flash. That has never appealed to me when shooting birds honestly. I don't care for what it does to the eye of the bird. For me it's more a matter of what settings to use under what conditions. Keep at it and you'll get it.

If you have an EXIF extension for you browser you can see many of the settings for each shot. You can look further if you go to billmorris.smugmug.com under Browse. All the settings are shown by clicking the info button on the bottom right of each pic.

What lens?

Nice shots. I've never have stuck one yet. It takes me Two boxes of shotgun shells just to make a pie. Tasty but is it really worth it? IDK??

Bill M 11-16-2017 04:55 PM

Thanks for these additional comments. Missed them somehow.
