Hummingbird


Hummingbird, originally uploaded by Rob Weiher.

I drove up to the Santa Cruz Arboretum this morning to meet up with a few people I've met on Google+ and spend some time photographing flowers and hummingbirds. It was a fun morning.

This was my first time trying to photograph these little birds. I always assumed you needed a really big lens but was informed that my 55-250mm would be just fine. My new friend Barry told me what settings he uses and off I went.

minimum 1/1250, f/7.1 and whatever ISO you need to keep a fast shutter speed (in my case today between 400 and 640).
