Re: HOW TO SET UP- Hummingbird photography

I agree with the addictive part. Once you make the first attempt you just have to keep trying. What becomes clear now is the amount of set-up and forethought which go into dealing with a rather complicated little critter. I felt pretty good about getting them on the little feeder perches and the occasional flight shot till I saw what you were achieving.

It is obvious that like a lot of other apparently simple tasks this is really not. It is something to work on, but you don't need it all at once. One strobe will do for starters but a bit of reach is obviously essential. Thanks for the detailed description. We are going through lots of sugar here this summer so hummer opportunities abound but so do the mosquito guys at the best time of day. Always something. John
