Good to see that your buddies are still enjoying the hot summer days; My flowers and plants are all stressed out from the extremely dry and hot summer this year. (I've been staying cool in the community indoor pool!)

The weather out here has been bad the last couple of weeks, Cecily! We've been up into the eighties and close to 90 with some humidity. I know that sounds funny, but, when you're not used to it, the California sun is very hot(may have something to do with age).
I haven't been on DA that much this summer; just sorta post and run or fav when I get the chance. Happy to hear you're doing well.
I bought a new Canon 5DmkIII and have been working with that trying to figure out the volumes of menus and especially the autofocus system; so far no real luck, I'm too used to Nikon! My time with my hummingbirds is limited and you can't work on high speed objects in the house!

It's not surprising to read you're trying out yet another now toy, Walt! ;)
Did you purchase the menus separately or they came with the camera? Frankly, I've not taking full advantage of all the features in my 40D yet. I know 5d MarkIII is a professional grade camera and does not come with the training wheel like my 40D, but I'm sure you'll put your brain/reading power in good use! :D Can't wait to see your quality photos from 5d MarkIII!

I just got the autofocus working for the hummingbirds today, just have to make one more minor adjustment to get it to track faster for these zippy little birds. It's not the pro grade and is considered prosumer(high end consumer)! The 1Dx is the pro camera and that's a little too expensive for me. Every you need to know about it, like everything else, is on the internet. I set up the autofocus from instructions on the internet rather than try the manual.

Oops, I didn't realize that this picture was taken with your 5D. (Um... I've not learned how to track moving object yet; Got to find time learning how to do it.) Just had a more close look at your recent posts of hummingbirds in action, I think the result is quite well, don't you think?

I have to redo my last post or remove it. The photoshop file looks nothing like the posting??!! I have to check the Gamma on my computer. I checked it on my PC too, looks just as bad! Just type 'autofocus for hummingbirds(or anything else) for your camera'. Someone's done it and wrote it out clearly. The autofocus on the 5DIII is a nightmare! For close-up shooting you should be using manual focus and a tripod.
I'm down to just a couple of varieties of birds, so I think they can get boring. I'll have to look for other stuff to shoot.

I think my mountain climbing days are over. It's hummingbirds and bugs and an occasional flower now.
