My First Hummingbird Photos

Late evening (7pm) during and just after a rain storm isn't an ideal time to try and photograph feeding Hummingbirds. I just had to give it a shot. I had to crank up the film speed to 1600 asa which caused the graininess. Just wasn't enough light to come close to stopping the wing beats. They are pretty cool dudes to watch. They would sit in the Red Bud tree for several minutes at a time before heading for the feeder.
