Today I devoted a few hours this afternoon to observing and photographing the hummingbirds at our montbresia plants. I read the Sat Globe… and more of the novel I am reading… and when I heard the hum… then I picked up my camera.

I tried uping the ISO, using the sports mode, using shutter priority at various speeds, putting up the + and – . In the end, just as I was being called because supper was on the table, the light became just right. With more light it was easier to freeze the rapid action.

For one of my favourite photos I used the automatic ISO, shutter speed of 1/1250 and and F stop of 5.6.
