Yes I remember our meeting in the Serengetti. A once in a lifetime experience lol.

Thanks for pointing out the thread with your suggestions. I will set my camera up with these suggestions for hummingbirds. Personally I like using manual but these little birds are just too fast for manual. I have had the camera for a few months now and am amazed at what this camera can do..

Alwyn is much better at capturing birds than I am, but I will share my settings with you.

I went to shutter priority, 1/1000, f/4 and ISO on AUTO. I set the focus to small flexible spot and set the metering to center. Drive to Lo. I tried to put the focus spot on the birds eyes but they do hop around pretty quickly. Focus switch in the front on A.
