Gotcha!

I have been working on my stealth technique for stalking hummingbirds.  I bought a mini-tripod.  I’ve even read the manual.  I learned about fixing the auto focus.  I learned how to reduce degradation of the image when I go past the 3x optical zoom max.   This is the best shot I’ve gotten so far.    I’d like to learn how to modify the contrast when taking the picture.   The oak tree behind the feeder and the light at this time of day makes it difficult to have the image in the foreground pop.   But I’m pleased with the result so far.   I guess I can give the little birdies a rest, for now.

  1. Hey thanks for visiting my photos 🙂 I love that you have hummingbirds to take photos of! The only birds I get are big fat wood pigeons and a few blue tits (though they’re nice) 🙂
