My first attempt at photography...started a couple of months back...crimson sunbird feeding like a hummingbird. In two days, just saw them doing this once and unfortunately didn't get the focus right.

I think that it is the shutter speed and not focus.

I was thinking it's a bit of both...

You really need high shutter speeds on tiny birds. Those wings move a lot faster than you think. I remember my first tries at BIF.... same problem.... I KNEW the shutter speed was fast enough, but the wings were blurred...

We learn by doing and asking... looking forward to your future work :)
The best camera is the one in your hands

Yup. Will try with faster shutter speeds...hoping to travel over the weekend to see if I can capture any birds.

Hi Bill.
Lovely shot, is that female flared for landing, or just jumped in to the air? If she is landing, is she really landing on the HARD slippery ice rather than the water? I don't know if it is lack of practice, but when there is ice here the ducks all seem to spin out and crash as they attempt to land on it!

Cheers Graham.

OK, enough of these BIFs with green scenery :-)
