Humming Bird with the Z 7

After lots of waiting at my local wildlife refuge I was lucky enough to catch one of the migrating humming birds.  I'm always so amazed at how small they are and how quickly they can move.  This is the first time I got to try the Z 7 and the 500PF lens for this challenging scenario.  I previously would use my D500 for this so the Z 7 had big shoes to fill.  I was very happy with the results I got and found them to be comparable to the D500.  Again, the biggest difference between the two cameras was the buffer.  I hope the Z 7s gets a bigger buffer, so it can be an even better wildlife camera.  Here are some pictures I hope you enjoy.

Look at those translucent wings.

I wish the flower was in better shape.

I love the colors.

I think this was my favorite!
