I've wanted to capture a humming bird for quite some time now. Very cool shot! All of them look great! I agree with Hybrid Designz about the last one though. It's not dark enough to make it bad, but lightening it up a little would make a world of difference I think.
I agree, the last needs some fill light in the shadows, I took that a few years ago when I got my first DSLR, I don't think I kept the original RAW file, back then I didn't even know how to edit things properly. If I do have it, I'll try to brighten the shadows up
Hybrid: I think I have a few osprey shots, but been very unlucky with hawks and eagles dern it!
Colin: That was my best hummer shot, most are of them sitting on or at the feeder, and I agree, those guys are tough, they usually show up after sun down when it's kinda dim out, so hard to get a fast shutter speed. I envy those people who have them in the bright light drinking on a cool flower, that's my dream shot of one
I got lucky with that guy, he landed ina small berry producing tree in our yard, about 15 feet away, while I was standing there with my Camera in hand! Like "thank you!" lol
That's a good shot you got too, it's weird how birds are different in different areas, around here, I can usually walk up about 15 or so feet to cedars and robbins, but starlings book it when I'm 50 feet away.
