Default Hummers and more!

Oh Gosh! It feels like months since I have been able to contribute something here. It seems like work and fatherhood has taken every spare second I had for photography!

I managed to get a few days off work and with the blessing of my wife I took myself down to South East Arizona, close to the Mexican Border to shoot some of the hummers. What a great experience!

Here are a selection of the shots I was able to take:

Anna's Hummingbird.

EXIF: 1/1250", f5.6, ISO 200, 300mm, Manual Mode.

Rufous Hummingbird and Bee.

EXIF: 1/1250", f5.6, ISO 200, 300mm, Manual Mode.

Black-chinned Humminbird.

EXIF" 1/1250", f7.1, ISO 200, 300mm, Manual Mode.

Anna's Hummingbird.

EXIF: 1/400", f5.6, ISO 200, 420mm, Manual Mode, Fill Flash.

White-breasted Nuthatch.

EXIF: 1/200", f5.6, ISO 200, 420mm, Manual Mode, Fill Flash.

Gila Woodpecker.

EXIF: 1/250", f5.6, ISO 200, 420mm, Manual Mode, Fill Flash.

I have plenty of other shots, plus a bunch of lifers to add to my list, but as some of them include feeders in the image I have omitted them from this post.

Thank you all very much for the kind feedback. This was my first real shoot since my back yard setup that I posted previously. I am going to try to start posting again on a more regular basis.
