Hummingbirds, Those Little Lightning Bolts


I've been trying to get a photo of the hummingbirds on the feeder by my studio window, but I haven't had much success. This shot was sent in by friend, Irvane Spracklin and Photoshoped by me. It's not easy getting a good picture of these little lightning bolts! Especially this time of year when they are fewer and farther in between. Getting them in focus, out of shadow and including a pleasing background are major challenges. By the end of the season I should be able to get a few good ones. Patience, patience, patience! If any of you shoot some good ones, send them in. I'd love to see them.
