Hi, Jane,

Hi Jane,

This is an excellent capture of a difficult subject as they move around so much. Nice colours shown here. If there is enough light you can maybe go to F8 but keep the speed up.

Is your camea set on ISO400?

TFS Regards

Hi Jane,

Excellent capture of this hovering hummingbird - not easy to do. Wonderful that he chose such a pretty flower to share the picture with. Colors are gorgeous, details are excellent, beautiful background and composition. They seemed to return to Tucson yesterday but it's just too hot to stay outside and stalk them.
