    The rain had finally started to let up last week and a got a shot of a humming bird outside at the feeder. Tough little guys to get in focus, they are way too fast!

    Thanks! I believe this one was 1/500 at f8 I was snapping too fast to track the speeds well.

    I ended up setting the focus at a certain point on the feeder and then trying to snap them when they came up to it. Much easier than following the birds, which is what I tried to do at first. I kept changing the apeture and speed to see if that helped. Still learning.

    Here's another one but she's hiding a bit behind the feeder.
