Re: How Far Are You From the Birds?

I am approx 7-8 ft from the birds except for some of my macro shots..........they feel more than safe at that distance, again you need to move slowly but no problem...........key is being ready as their is always another hummer there trying to chase the others out. The rufous where I was dominated, the caliopes fared ok but the poor blackchins barely had a chance, very frustrating. LOL

From your pictures of the setup it looks like the camera is fairly
close to the feeder??? Are you using a remote shutter release?
Even if you are it seems like you will still be pretty close to the
birds; aren't they intimidated by your presence?
