    OK, seeing these hummingbird pics got me wanting to try some. Handheld with flash.

    DAMN DUDE! It's like a freakin' Hitchcock movie at your house! We very rarely get more than one or two at a time and you've got a freakin' infestation!

    Those freakin' OWN, Mike. Great job! Only things I'd even consider saying are to 1) maybe diffuse the flash a bit (or dialing it back a little) to keep the harsh shadows and shine marks from being so noticeable, and 2) moving the focus/metering point to a place in the viewfinder where you'd most often get the birds so that the lens doesn't focus on the feeder instead of the birds.

    Other than that, screw you for getting the shots I've been after for weeks!

    Yeah, awesome shots! Is this the 70-200 f/2.8 IS? Echo everything that FBJ said, awesome shots! Love seeing a humming bird with his (her?) tongue sticking out.

    Gonna toot my own horn a bit here:

    I made the top 500 in Flickr's "Most Interesting" images for Jan 15, 2008. #61. I guess that's pretty decent considering the fact that they have literally 100s of thousands of images uploaded in a day's time.

    I'm top of page #7.

    I don't think it hangs with the rest, really. Most of those photographs in that list are freakin' uber creative and masterfully shot!

    I don't know. I think it fits in fine. Some of the others do nothing for me, especially once you get past page 8 or so.

    Well these photography threads have finally inspired me to try to get back into it. These days I've been shooting thousands of shots of family stuff, like vacations and my son's hockey games. I have not really tried anything creative for the sake of creativity in years. Anyway, the other thread got me inspired. Only problem is I have so little time. So yesterday we had a pretty nice sunset so I went out on the balcony of our office building to see if I could come up with something with glass. Fortunately we are across from the beach so it is a nice setting. I'm one of those that think sunsets are a little cliche but, what the heck it was pretty and you gotta start somewhere. Unfortunately I could not come up with a "glass" shot I liked. Here is one example:



    On the other hand it was a nice sunset so I took some looking off the balcony. I thought the one of the lovers on the beach was kind of the most interesting because of the reflection off the sand and the fact that these "love birds" are not really alone although they are sharing a pivate moment.






    I'm still thinking "glass" and when I come up with something good I'll post it.
