Thank you when I went through my pictures I had many and I mean many misses but it is a lot of fun to try to capture them. I am going to keep trying I just might get lucky🙂These are nice. If you were trying to get them in hover flight, it's very challenging. I like to use fast shutter speeds. A good AF system or set up right is challenging as well. My best humming bird moth shots came from manual zone focus (I've never had a great af camera) and super high shutter speed like 1/8000s. Lots of misses
Thank you I think you have to have a lot of patience to get the right shot they are super fast🙂I agree with your title 100%! You’ve made a good start.
Thank you I am going to try different settings I will get one hopefully but I am having fun trying!Good effort and not bad for a first try. 1/800th may seem fast but I would try 1/1600 sec. Your ISO and noise will increase but some NR will take care of that and they'll look sharper. I would also try getting shots either early morning or late afternoon when the light is more horizontal rather than over head to reduce shadows underneath and have your back to the sun if possible for better frontal shots. If that's not possible I would set the ISO to at least EV+1 for starters to bring up the shadows. Bring it up more if need be, play around with it, keep changing the settings to compare and find what works best for the conditions. GL.
Thank you hopefully things get straightened out where you are!excellent series. the 4th is my favorite. we've got some avian disease spreading here so several states are telling residents to remove all of their bird feeders and bird baths to prevent the spread.
