Just stopping by to say, "Hello". I haven't been taking very many photos recently. Too busy and too hot. Bird activity is at a minimum. I did get my Nikon D800 but haven't spent a lot of time getting familiar with it. I immediately ran into a problem in that my Photoshop Elements 8 and Lightroom 3 software would not open a RAW image. I thought a RAW image was a RAW image but such is not the case. So, I need to buy upgraded versions.

I did play around a little with Hummingbirds. These photos were taken at 1/8000's of a second with a 500mm lens. Lighting was not too good for that speed so I had to lighten the photos quite a bit. I was told that to get good action photos of Hummingbirds one needs additional lighting like that provided with a "Better Beamer". A colorful male or two would also help the image but it seems most of them are young and/or females.

Overwhelmed? There's a lot to see here. Try starting at our homepage.
