"Ruby Throated Hummingbirds"

The rubies are back and providing wonderful entertainment .
I was using auto ISO in case you are wondering why the iso's are so different. Also, manual settings, AF-C 9 or 21 points. Natural light.

Any suggestions, comments, critiques are most appreciated.

I hope you enjoy,

Birdie

My only suggestion is to give us the EXIF, but my EXIF reader works. These are superb, especially given that they're done in natural light.

Hello Roberta,

Very cool, and natural… did you find these in a treasure box or something?

In my book, your first picture will be tabbed under "Chef d'œuvre" or "Master Pieces" for
that shot is perfect.

Congratulations,

Those are great shots Roberta!

You need to update your equipment list....the D800 appears to be a new addition (and giving great results already) .
