Fantastic! Would love to see your setup for these shots.


Hi Mickey, I used the Nikon D500, with 300mm f4-afs for these images except the last, all photographed with natural light and manual camera settings- with shutter speeds between 1/320th -1/2500th sec.

The last image in the series had some fill flash and was photographed with a D7000 with the 300f4 +1.7TC @ ISO800 -f9-1/125th with Nikon SB-600.

Note the natural iridescence and colors reflected from the sunlight.







A very young male, may be mistaken for the female, note the dark spots on the gorget.







In poor lighting conditions, giving a little stretch before lift off.
