Two more hummers: first one is w the flashes to stop wing motion w set-up described above; second is a natural shot w 600mm II + 1.4XTC + fill flash using better beamer and high-speed synch at 1/1000 and f8 - doesn't quite stop the wings. The first technique requires a lot of patience and sitting (the camera is manually focused on the lure and you just push the remote when a bird visits), while the second is dependent on rapid AF and framing a fast moving subject.
Great shots and very impressive to get so close to them. I like the 2nd shot a bit better - I think the blurring shows the motion and gives the shot more feeling. I'd be very happy to get either photo

I only shoot at ISO 100 with perfect technique - should I get a Nikon?
