| p.1 #1 · The best hummingbird photo I've taken so far! |
Just got a 70-200 2.8 IS MkII, and while I don't have any of the super-tele lenses, I still like to try my hand at bird photography whenever I get a chance. This morning, after weeks of a heat wave, I noticed the hummingbirds had returned to our feeders. This shot was taken at about 10am today, natural light, handheld on a 7D. I was about 5-6 feet away - hooray for the 7D's cropping capabilities! The light and background turned out perfect. The bird was in almost direct sunlight. The shutter speed was fast enough that the green trees in the distant background, which were in shadow were completely blacked out.
