Thanks Marya, I enjoy watching and trying to photograph the hummingbirds I see in my yard. I am especially pleased with my last sighting http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/116... with the hummingbirds at the flowers.

Tibiprada, estoy usando una Nikon D300s, pero honestamente cualquier persona con cualquier cámara réflex digital y el conocimiento de que la cámara puede recibir inyecciones de este tipo o mejor. Si está utilizando una cámara réflex digital de cualquier tipo que usted puede recibir inyecciones de esta manera. Si usted tiene una cámara réflex digital y desean enviarme un correo electrónico, estoy más que dispuesto a darle algunos pensamientos y ajuste de la cámara que uso para los tiros de vuelo o planos estáticos. No disparar en automático, y el control más o menos en mi configuración de la cámara, y se mueven tan a menudo como fuera necesario, antes de hacer las capturas. Por lo general minutos antes de la captura, ya que estoy revisar regularmente la iluminación, y hacer pequeños cambios como las condiciones lo ameritan. Bendita seas mi amigo, gracias por preguntar. El conocimiento que tengo, me es grato compartir.

Thank you, MaithiliSave, CarolSnowMilne,
AntónioGinjaGinja, AshishNimkar and tibiprada for your nice comments.

Tibiprada, I am using a Nikon D300s, but honestly anyone with any DSLR camera and the knowledge of that camera can get shots like this or better. If you are using a DSLR of any type you can get shots like this. If you have a DSLR and wish to email me, I am more then willing to give you a few thoughts and camera setting I use for flight shots or static shots. I do not shoot in auto, and I pretty much control on my camera setting, and move them as often as need be, before I make the captures. Generally minutes before the capture, as I am regularly checking lighting, and making small changes as conditions warrant. Be blessed my friend, thanks for asking. The knowledge I have, I gladly share.
