    Hi all.. as many of you know I have a thing for hummingbirds. All non-cp plants in my garden are there specificaly as hummingbird attractants...

    Anyway, I have been fooling with my moms cam for the last couple days trying to get decent pics of them... Here are a few of the best.. Hope you enjoy.

    wow that's awsome! I've tried to take pictures of them so many times but they're fast and my camera doesn't zoom in so they look tiny.

    You can see a bit of noise in the background, my best guess is 600 ISO+ a shutter speed of 1/300th seconds

    Thanks all.. glad you enjoy

    Im using an Olympus C-4000 Zoom digital camera. The shutter speed is default set at 1/1000 and is the setting I am using. Distance from target approximately 10 feet with full zoom.

    Cheers
