Last night, I took out my tripod, camera, etc., to try and photograph some hummingbirds as they came to my feeder.
I have waited till rather late in the season, partly because some of my equipment is new to me and I haven’t used it much. After trying the remote shooting fireworks a couple weeks ago, I decided I needed to venture into other things!
Between equipment malfunctions (mostly due to operator error), I managed to get a few photos. The hummingbirds aren’t as plentiful as they were earlier in the summer; it won’t be long before they migrate to winter quarters, but I did get at least two different birds to come in while I was waiting. Another time, I hope to get more action– once I work out the malfunctions!
Equipment: Camera, Nikon D5100; Sigmas 150-500mm lens,Giotto tripod, Opteka gimbal head
