Thank you! Yes, I'm using the Nikon system lighting with 2 - 6 strobes equipped with diffusion disks and or umbrellas mounted on light stands. This photo was only two flashes; one SB-800 with a diffusion disk and one SB-900 shooting through an umbrella for diffusion.
The strobes are controlled with a Nikon Su-800 wireless controller that is camera mounted. The strobes are set in Manual at 1/16th power(~ 1/16,000 seconds). Camera speed and ISO are low. I shoot at dusk when they have to feed. Here are a couple of links for this type hummingbird photography. <[link]>

I've also found I can use a camera mounted strobe in Manual at 1/8 to 1/16 power with a standard polypropylene diffuser(sometimes stuffed with tissues) if I'm in a hurry. Any questions, you can note me. You(and I assume your husband) have really great galleries.

Thank you so much for the info - a wonderful gift! Papatheo (yup, he's my hubby!) and I have just recently gotten into more advanced lighting - learning from the website strobist.com, and gathering together the equipment. Your info and photography are a major inspiration - whole new possibilities are opening up with these new lighting techniques! Thankyou thankyou thankyou.

Thanks very much for the compliment! Aside from some little brown birds(thousands) and a couple of peanut loving blue jays, these are the only birds I have. I've managed to attract 30+ birds to a very small plot of land in Orange County, CA.
