This shot is a female ruby-throated hummingbird. She was the most frequent visitor today. This shot was at 1/125 sec, f/5.6, ISO 450, EV -2/3.
Here is the male that I only got to shoot twice all afternoon.
1/250 sec, f/4, ISO400, -2/3 EV
Here is my fav:
No flash, 1/640 sec, f/5.6, ISO 4000
Here is the setup. (I had a purple plastic bag over the speedlight.)
I learned a lot about hummingbird photography here.
