Hummingbirds at Brookside Gardens

Nature, Photography, Wildlife

I have been shooting hummingbirds that came to my feeder on the backyard deck. Brookside Gardens have attracted many hummingbirds this month because of the special flowers planted and are blooming just about time for hummers to get all the nectar they can get before heading South for the winter. It’s quite a challenge to shoot the hummingbirds in the wild. Because of their fast moving nature one would like to have shutter speed set at least at 1/1600 second and consequently have to crank up ISO thereby introducing unwanted noise on the images.
