    Default 2014 Hummingbird Season

    Well, it's pretty much over for another year. I still have a few juveniles hanging around but I'm likely done with doing the setups with flowers and stuff. Here are the pictures from this past year. Hope you enjoy!!

    Thank you.

    In my previous hummingbird post I wrote an explanation of the setup but this time I thought I would post a picture. So here is a quick pic I took with my iphone to show the setup. I actually took this setup while photographing the last image with the juvenile and the red petunia.

    I am a little hesitant to show this out of embarrassment because of the state of our deck (the stain we put on it sucks!) As well, I took over my wife's flower planter and put flowers in it that I could grow to be used in these pictures so they aren't exactly the prettiest things in the world and the random apple tree branch sticking up out of it I use to capture some perched shots of various birds (the bark and moss on it looks great in pictures )

    I rarely use the bottom flash, 580exII, but I do occasionally when I'm getting shadows that I don't like. So usually its just a 4 flash setup.
