Finally....

© Jeff R. Clow

 

For many years I've admired so many good hummingbird shots on Flickr, but getting one myself has always proven to be a frustrating quest.

 

We've had lots of visitors to our garden, but if you've ever tried to shoot one of these ... you probably know all the things that can go wrong.

 

After many, many attempts - I finally got a shot against the background I wanted, with wing motion and decent details.

 

This was taken with a Nikon D7000 coupled with a Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8 lens and a Nikkor 2x teleconverter.

 

Thanks as always for stopping by my photostream today - much appreciated.
