Hi folks,

Here is a female Rufous hummingbird captured using Catch-in-Focusing (CIF) with the Pentax K-3 + Sigma 120-400mm APO DG OS HSM lens set to 300mm, f/8, 1/1250s, ISO1250. I think I had the focus distance set to about 6 feet (1.8 meters).

There were a lot of hummingbirds that came around but I forgot to set my Auto Power Off to OFF so it quit doing CIF after the first minute.

Female Rufous hummingbird.

Cheers.

Ron
