Planting of blue salvia in our garden was the right thing to do. The hummers in late April loved the blossom and the blooms provided a good place to pre-focus my Olympus E-30 DSLR. I used two strobes, 1/250th sec. exposure and around F10 aperture. Patience of course is still the main ingredient, wating for the occasional visits of the little birds.

Thanks Sheri

I would prefer to use natural light rather than strobes because it is simpler, but my camera is only good to about ISO 800 before grain becomes objectional. Thanks again for your kind remarks. Charles Baxter

I have a point and shoot sony dsch100v 30 optical zoom camera and love it but I can not do quite as well as having additional lens and a SLR camera.

This was beautiful how you froze it in midair.

I love salvias for my hummingbirds also and have
them in my flower garden.

We have the Ruby Red Throat but we hear there is a Rufous that is
starting to come to South Alabama

I hope to see one and photograph one.

Good job on your photography and flowers!
