Yesterday evening was my first real attempt to photograph hummingbirds and I now have a new appreciation for the task. You probably noticed that both of the shots were taken while the birds were at rest. No small wonder here. Turns out shooting hummingbirds in flight with at 500MM lens handheld is a little challenging, especially when that lens weighs in a 4 1/2 pounds! I will be working on a shooting strategy this week to try and get closer with a lighter and brighter lens.
