Intro and "Hummingbird in Flight" (Tad Arensmeier)

Hello to everybody! My name is Tad Arensmeier and I am 20 years old. I've been photographing seriously since I bought a Canon Digital Rebel when I was 15, I have since moved through a Canon 20D, and have now purchased a Canon 1Ds Mark III, which is taking some getting used to, and I have 4 Sigma lenses (2 macro, 1 telephoto, 1 wide angle). My pictures will be almost exclusively of animals, most frequently herps (Reptiles and Amphibians), and usually macro. My favorite place to shoot is the St. Louis Zoo, so the majority of my posted pictures will be from there. If you want to look at more of my pictures you can visit this website: http://www.flickr.com/photos/11304433@N00/ if you do visit, I suggest just looking at the set entitled "My Favorites" or you'll have to look at just about everything I've ever taken (good and bad). "Hummingbird in Flight"
This image was taken in Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado. The bird is going for a feeder that I watched for a couple of hours taking 100's of pictures trying to get one bird in flight without the feeder in the image. The greatest difficulty was focusing on the birds, you can't really afford to increase you DOF to make itany easier either becasue it will make your shutter to slow, and the birds move to quick for autofocus, so you have to use manuel focus, practice, and luck to actually catch one of these quick little birds in focus.

Tad, welcome to the fold! I'm Gabby's dad and we have a good friend and great photographer in St. Louis. Please look up Burt Remis and introduce yourself.

When photographing hummingbirds, I like to tape all but one of the feeder openings to insure that the bird goes to just the one I want. Put you lens in mannual focus, prefocus where the feeding tube is and wait for the hummer. They will take a sip and back up and pause. Shoot when they back up and pause.
Good luck.
