Hummingbird LOVE! (And Beauty!) (21:365!)


This is what I've been waiting for ALL summer...

The opportunity to catch a Hummingbird on CAMERA!

Well today was my LUCKY DAY!!

I love all these shots, even the slightly out of focus ones! ... Hummingbirds are so hard to catch ..those fast little buggers!

But I managed and gave my self a photography positive pat on the back!

Oh, and what settings did you use on your camera to catch such great shots of such a fast moving little birdie? Again, awesome shots!

Natalie said...

Thanks Tracey and Katie!
And PunkRockMOM! My ISO was at 100, my shutter was 1/800 and aperature of 1.8 (50mm lens) OH and my weapon of choice is the Sony A230 DSLR.. small and beginner's camera but works wonders! Hope that helps, this was late evening when the shots were taken! It was the low ISO coupled with the high (fast) shutter speed to catch the wings int the first one! Thanks for following and I will stop by Tuesday!

Great shots, lucky you. I did manage to capture my little H.bird friend last night at dusk. My shot is more of a shilouette.

Karli said...

WOW! These are fantastic! The main lens I use is a 24-70, and I'm really wanting a "zoomier" lens to get in close like this!

Just wanted to make sure you got my loooong email to you yesterday. I didn't want to leave all that in your comment section, but wanted to make sure it came thru. Have a great weekend! :-)

Great job! I just did a hummingbird post myself. I took 80 something shots and only got 4 pictures I liked! Those guys are hard to catch in action.

Natalie said...
