I had an extra 20 minutes this weekend so I stepped out in my front yard and tried to get a few photos of the humming birds that were buzzing around. I managed to get three shots before I had to get back to work.
I cropped these shots about 95% just to get the hummingbird in the photo by itself.
This is one of the original photos just to give you an idea of how much cropping was done.
These were shot with a Nikon D800 and Nikon 28-300mm lens from about 15-20 feet away. The lens was at 300mm and the camera was set at F6.3, ISO 1600 and the shutter speed was 1/3200.
I was trying to freeze the wings but even at 1/3200 of a second I couldn't do it.
