My first hummingbird
Posted By: anthropas, 11-27-2007, 07:48 PM

Living in Southern California we still have hummingbirds buzzing around in our backyard. We have a big hibiscus that attracts them as well as a feeder. This little guy is pretty territorial and he lets me get close. I only have the FA 50mm, so the lens was about 3 feet away from him. This is around a 50% crop or so. I know it's not the sharpest out there but I have such a hard time focusing on these guys. Autofocus always focuses on the leaves behind them and manual is pretty hit and miss for me yet. Anyway, this is my best hummer image to date. I know I have a long way to go to catch up to Chris and the other guys!
