On this page are views of Anna’s Hummingbirds that I shot in our back yard in the West Sacramento, Ca area. I’ve found a couple techniques that have finally allowed me to photograph these birds close enough to fill the frame better. I have found my biggest and most useful assistant is my Paul C Buff Einstein640 flash unit. That’s the method I use to help freeze those wings. Overall I’m using my Nikon D500, NIKKOR 300mm f/4E PF ED VR Lens, Manfrotto Tripod and lots of patience to capture these wonderful little birds.
