Focus

I used to think it was almost impossible to capture a hummingbird coming towards you at speed, but the amazing focusing abilities of the latest generation of cameras have made it sometimes possible.

That’s a great capture Michael. I even like the fact that the wings are blurred. I found a few methods that permit me to capture hummingbirds in various situations. The combination of technology and ingenuity usually you get you what you want. Nice image. Jim

Thank you, Jim. I have found that new technology tends to increase my ingenuity, which is a neat symbiosis. The whole digital experience has been quite inspirational, in fact. Michael
