p.1 #1 · Playing in the Honeysuckle (7).


With great anticipation and excitement, I got up early to photograph my hummer(s). Make coffee, feed the cat and dog set up my gear.

Looking down the barrel, I see I need to prune this and that. Move this plant this way and then back again. The light is perfect 7:45.

I wait.....I wait....I wait.....I wait....I wait.....I wait....I wait.....I wait....I wait.....I wait.... no hummers. Finally three hours later. I am fried.

x#!!!!1%........I reset my plants and shooting angle for the afternoon shift. I retire inside to watch a movie.

The movie ends and I set up another movie................the hummer called to me......to hell with it I'll go back outside...

Glad I did.

Enjoy!!!!! I did

I am always amazed at the fine detail you get with the 1.4 TC. Wish the Nikon TC worked as well

You forgot to have breakfast

Worth the wait I see UT! #4 and #7 look very nice, I can only seem to get one hummer to show up at a time, must need more plants

Nice colors Ted

Ted,

You never fail to impress. Great set of shots here. I am curious as to what distance you are shooting at? My guess is something less than 20'. Even with the monster glass and tc you use, you still need to be fairly close to fill the frame with these tiny hummers. You are an inspiration for us all.

Thanks for sharing.

The bird is the word!!
Was the movie about filming hummers?
If so you learned something. Or you knew it anyway. Nice variety of poses and positions. Don
