Hummer

Posted in Stop the action on June 27, 2010 by budbranch

Julie said that a hummer came by on a regular schedule, so I set up with a tripod, remote shutter release, set for 1/4,000th of a second, and focused on the flower.  All we had to do was squeeze the trigger when we saw/heard him, and the camera would fire off 10 exposures in quick order.  After a few false alarms, I sat down next to the camera at sundown, and the hummer appeared!  I squeezed, and this was the best of the 10 or so exposures – good for a start!

I do some tech consulting for a veterinary hospital.  While bearing down on a PC problem, I witnessed the presentation of a newborn puppy (who had been in some distress just a minute ago) to surprised, happy owners!
