p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Ruby-throated Hummingbirds


Shot with the 1DmkIII. 1&2 are with the 135L + 1.4xTC III and 3 is with the 300 f/4 IS L. Exifs are intact.
1
Very friendly, smart and eager bird. He knew what usually takes a week or two to teach, so I suspect he is back from last year.





2
Same bird as #1. He would immediately go to any flower I put out for him.





3
Different bird, less trusting so I had to use a longer lens and be very still. Smart though. I had him working flowers for me in a day.






This has been an epic hummingbird season so far and I'm not even 10 days into it! If you're interested in the details, check out my blog @ http://www.photogrey.blogspot.com/

they look nice but are a bit small. They must be quite tame to allow you to be that close with a 135+1.4x.. or did you have the camera on a tripod with a shutter release?

Hi trueimage,

I apologize for the size - I had processed them for something else and just used them here because I was in a hurry. I'll see about putting up larger ones asap.

I wouldn't call them tame, though the first bird would perch on my finger if I put it in front of the feeder. The second bird is pretty skittish, though he's calmed down a bit since I backed off with the longer lens. My shooting distances were ~3' for the 1st pic, 5' for the second and 6' for the 3rd.

Thanks for the good words.

So sorry for the delay, folks. Work, work and a wedding anniversary have kept me hopping.

Thank you for the kind words all. I'll be posting more soon.
