JD (I couldn't find your real name anywhere)

That last hummingbird image has awesome feather detail . . . perhaps the best I've ever seen in a bird image. What were your settings for this image? What camera body were you using? And what was your distance-to-subject?


"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

It looks like he was using a 60D and using a EF100mm f/2.8 Macro USM his EXIF date can be found here http://www.flickr.com …enzfreak/915324​0027/meta/ (external link). Very impressive work.

I must admit I am no bird expert and have no idea what type this next one is.

The birds are so tame at Estero Lagoon, all you need is a 70-200 in most cases.

Thank you, Kind of a right place right time shot, was testing a flash diffuser i made and was actually shooting bugs when this guy flew above my head. This particular hummingbird has been coming around since he was a wee little one so he has no fear of me.

Was shot with a 60D, 100mm macro with a 12mm extension tube, maximum focus distance with the tube on is just under 2 feet so i was within that for the shot. Settings were 1/200 at F/8 ISO 400 :)

"Under 200 mm" is no problem if the conditions are just right. Baby turkeys at the county fair yesterday:

This obliging pigeon sat on a pier and let me take many shots from six feet away while trying out settings. Finally I found a combination that didn't blow out the white patch on the bird's back. It involved darkening so far from average that almost all the data in the histogram are in the left half.

G15, Tv mode, 1/250 sec, f/3.5, —1 2/3 EC, WB daylight, ISO 80, ND filter turned on.
