Lens: HD DA55-300mm f4.5-6.3 PLM Camera: K-3II Photo Location: Granite Bay, CA ISO: 800 Shutter Speed: 1/350s Aperture: F6.3

an attack on another hummingbird. They are some of nature's most aggressive birds The HD DA55-300mm f4.5-6.3 PLM is the perfect lens for these little guys. They are a pretty small target but the lens locks focus very quickly. It is much more of a struggle with my DA*60-250.

Thanks Bengt! I purposely set up to get a clean background. These little guys are pretty used to me, so for the most part they ignore me.
