So we tried something new today. Our feeder is usually visited as the light starts fading on the side of the house where we have the feeder and getting pictures of our resident hummingbirds gets tough. So today, I decided to put my flash triggers to the test. The results were not so good. For one, I think I overdid the Flash exposure compensation. In general the lighting seems off. Any insights into making these better would be much appreciated. I am not used to flash photography, and definitely not trying to do it on hummingbirds.
1. The light was still OK when I took this.Took this at 1/1600 and this is by far the best

2. This one was same conditions as the previous one. Shutter speed was at 1/2000

3. Then it got a little darker and these pictures are pretty bad. Had to bring the exposure down as far as I could in PP. This one is 1/1600. A pity since the bird posed a bit and we could have got some great ones.
