Just found this thread and just started interest in Humming Birds. We put up a feeder a couple of days ago and have taken a couple of shots. Handheld using D7000 with Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 VRII. Shot in RAW (then cropped and converted to JPG) at f/7.1, 1/250 shutter speed and ISO100. Used a SB-800 camera mounted flash in TTL mode. I think this is a female Anna's humming bird. Please feel free to comment. I am anxious to try some of Keith's suggestions.

Very good start.  Keith really helped my brother and I back then.  Though I wearied after many pictures of the 2 species.  Looking to start up again using PB Einstein 640's and light modifiers like umbrellas or soft boxes.  Right now we are doing butterflies.  Here is some from the past.  I did still take some occasionally to make sure I didn't forget how.
