A True Challenge - To capture such Beauty!
The fun of bird photography can be equally as frustrating.
We enjoy the beauty of these tiny feathered creatures, just watching them fuss and maintain territories is amazing to see. Their navigational skills are incredible! To capture a pair of hummingbirds
in focus can be the ultimate challenge.
This shot taken from about 10 feet, at 340 mm at f4, leaving me with less then 1 inch of depth of field. The key is to find 2 birds at exactly the same distance from the camera!
A special thanks to everyone who commented, +1, and shared my last image.... unreal!! Over 851,000 views! I am really not sure how that happened, but I do appreciate this very much.
