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.
