Another hummingbird pic



Another hummingbird photo from my visit to the Huntington Gardens this past weekend. I almost overlooked this one -- it required a big crop. But the light is nice and I got the sun spot on his/her eyeball. 

Camera settings: Nikon D5100, Nikon 70-300mm lens at 300mm, 1/2000th, f/11, ISO 800. I was really trying to freeze the wings in motion and still didn't manage at 1/2000th. I had to run the photo through Topaz's de-noise program in processing -- the noise likely the result of shooting at ISO 800 with the telephoto fully extended. 

Here's my SmugMug site. Me on Twitter.
