We have a pair of ruby-throated hummingbirds that regularly visit our backyard flower garden, and I’ve made it a goal to figure out the best way to photograph these colorful and interesting birds.
As they are typically most active in the morning, the availability of adequate light seems to provide the biggest challenge. This was a practice round to see how it would go with minimal light available. I’ve been paying attention to the feeding times, and it seems like I may have a window of about 30 minutes when these flowers are well-lit. Patience is going to be critical to get everything to come together.
