Excellent! I had looked at some similar list earlier and chosen Petunias as the easiest to find/cheapest choice.

I will look at the others you mentioned earlier. Thank you.

Wow. You all have taken some beautiful hummingbird pictures. I tried for the first time the other day. Mine are not worthy to be posted in this thread. But you all have given me inspiration to keep working at it.

I just got my 7D Mark II last week, so I'm still learning my way around it. This is with the EF 400mm f5.6L and cropped almost 50%.
1/320 sec., f5.6. ISO was 1250 trying to get a feel for not having IS.
