Hummer Watch Day 2

SmugMug Daily Link

I was back at Ms. Jean's house again yesterday waiting out the hummers on her pretty purple salvia bush.  I am thrilled the head is in focus on this shot!  I have been shooting ISO 100 to avoid grain that is easily introduced with my Canon SX40 HS.  That puts my shutter speed around 1/125 or 1/60 in the bright sunlight.  After this shot, I decided to try my flash, but it got too hot and late, and I had to stop for the day.  I guess I'm going to try the flash and also risk an ISO of 400 or 800 and see what I get.  It's a good thing Ms. Jean doesn't mind me coming back to practice:-)
