Re: Fisheye for birding...

I wanted to get shots of hummingbirds coming and going. Can't track the little buggers, so I used a really wide angle for the DOF, and put it really close to the feeder - because the birds are pretty small. Triggered using ishare from inside the house. Sort of worked, I was going to do it again with more light to get more DOF, but haven't gotten around to it.

Nice use of fisheye.

When you redo it (more light, more DOF), I would also consider getting even closer.

If the camera just sits right next to the feeder, would the birds mind?
