Speedo by Good-e-nuf

/ / ©2012-2015 Good-e-nuf
3 Nikon strobes mounted off camera and set to fire at 1/16 power in manual mode(1/19,000 second exposure). Strobes are controlled by a Camera mounted SU-800 control unit. I'm sitting on a six foot stonewall and the feeder is 4 feet off the ground.

This bird chatters at me the most, but is the first to hand feed when I have a red bottle cap full of sugar water.

I lurk near their feeder. These are the easy photos, the difficult ones are when you see them in flowers.

Unless you're a good swimmer, I think you're SOL. Do you have any zoos that have them? I wouldn't put seeing one on my bucket list, but they would be nice to see once; besides, zoos are fun.

Fantastic! You got this at such a low shutter speed! How many species live in your area? There are over 25 different species in Costa Rica, and I hope to go back down in the future specifically to photograph them (after my technique has greatly improved).

During the winter, we only have two; the Anna's and the Allen's. During the spring we have several different species passing through. I'm on the coast of California so we don't get too many. Most tend to stay near the mountains and the desert. I'm using my strobe(s) as the shutter: low ISO, f/8 and 1/200 seconds for the camera and the strobes(3) are set to fire on manual at ~1/20,000 seconds(1/16 power) and are controlled buy a controller(Nikon SU-800) on the camera. Here's two links to help<[link]>

I use everything in between to regulate wing blur and ghosting.
