    Hummingbird against the sun. Not the ideal situation, but pretty descent. F3 and 70-150mm Vivitar

    Thanks. Last shot is by far the best, but I thought the backlighted humingbird shots look good as well.

    Well done, Dave. I've never had much success photographing hummingbirds, but that was before I got the Nex. I noticed flowers forming on our Butterfly Bush, so it's time to get ready. :)

    I simply focused on the feeder, and took shots when it got close.

    Don't go chasing them around.
