Ditto, Jenn's comment. Congrat's Akhtar on this {A+++} in-flight Hummingbird capture. "This is a definite 'multi-award winner,' IMHO." Great work, my friend, & all accolades will be well-deserved on this fine photograph. Regards...Peter

Hello, Ronnie, Thank you very much for your comments on this image. I got shaky hands so I lleave everything to Lens, tripod and a thing called Nikon DSLR to do the trick for me. I am just a person who trigger sutter release whenever my finger becomes itchy.

Hi bluetitblue, thank you for request to know how I did it. Its a long hard task and deleting several images for trial an error. Finally I got the right formula. Set the camera and prefocus the flower first using manual focusing then used slow shutter speed at f22 and and waited for humming bird to move in the frame and realeased the shutter about 1 sec before the bird was about to move in nearer to flower. Beleave me this was the only shot from all the one I took. I thnik I got lucky this time. Befor I was frustrated and disappointed.
Regards

Hi Pudd64 my earlier post was meant for your enquiry. I mistakenly replied to bluetitblue. There was an error from my part.
Akhtar
pudd64 12 16 United Kingdom

Still struggling to work out how you got bird in focus using f22 must of been extremely slow shutter speed but wings show hardly any blur at such a slow speed.

Hello Martin, I tried several shutter speed settings in all the shots I took and can't remember exactly what the setting was on this image. I just got lucky, I guess. Sorry I can't be much more help.
