2016 Hummingbird Season Has Begun!

They’re back! This is my first decent shot of the season. I ended last year shooting hummingbirds with flowers, but I don’t have any yet so I shot this at the feeder.

Male Broad Tailed Hummingbird

Image details are the same as last year – Canon 5D Mark III and Canon 70-200L f2.8 II at 200mm, 1/8000 second, ISO 3200, F/9 using a Catus laser detector to trigger the exposure. No flash was used (they startle the birds).
