Photographing hummingbirds is a truly exasperating practice. The combination of short exposure time (a thousandth of a second or less), difficult autofocus target and flighty behavior means you may be waiting for hours for a shot that will only last for seconds. Anyway I had some success with the Sony 90mm macro. When I buy this lens soon I’ll do some more and try to develop some technique.
I’ll put up a small hummingbird group soon that I took with the Sony 90mm F\2.8 macro. But here’s one to start off.
Ruby Throated Hummingbird
Camera Girl informed me that the hummingbirds arrived exactly on schedule (01MAY) yesterday. How do they do it? Looking forward to trying that 180 macro on them when it arrives on the 11th.
