    Serious passion for the little guys.;) Great photos on your web page there. We love to see them here to but there is only a couple to 3 a year around here.I heard there was alot more before Fran blew through here.

    I'd love to get that involved photographing hawks but $$ would definitely hinder that endeavour.:(
    Most people just listen to music and watch movies . I am glad to be a part of a select group that tries to take our auditory and visual senses to a higher level: we EXPERIENCE them.... GOT SDA?...GOT SUNFIRE? ...GOT Maggies?

    Thanks for the comments. We get them here in middle Tennessee from April and into October but they don't start hitting our feeders heavily until late July. Then by mid August you can't hardly look at the feeder without seeing one. We don't get that many, its just that the few we get are at the feeder very often and usually battle one another for feeder rights. It gets quite funny at times. We never grow tired of watching them.

    Thanks again,

All this makes for a very underexposed ambient exposure and leves the final exposure actually dependant on the flash duration which is very very short. Thus freezing wing motion. Here is a pic of the setup I use...

    Mmm, gimbel... I count 7 flashes, or is 1 a commander? I see the transmitter... How many receivers do you have for it? At present, I'm stuch with just 2 flashes/

    There are 7 but the one mounted on the camera is just a trigger for the optical slaves on the other 6. Its output is much too low to figure in on the final exposure.

    The Canon 580EX Speedlight flash will act as a master and you can run as many flashes as you have off of it. I've used 4 430EX flashes off one 580EX as the master (five flashes total). The new Canon 7D camera will control multiple flashes without having to use a 580 or a transmitter.

    If you are a Nikon shooter, Joe McNally has a video (The Speed of Light) where he is using multiple Nikon flashes to get the some shots out in the desert. Not so much of an instructional video as much as it is a concept.

    Multiple flashes are a pretty good way to go, but it is almost as cheap to get some decent stobes (like AlienBees) with lightstands and soft boxes if portability is not your main concern.

    The Nikon D300 can also command many flashes in what they call the Creative Lighting Syetem (CLS). Fot the humming birds however, I find its much better to set everything up to manual. 3 of my Nikons have built in slaves but those other older flashes (Sunpaks and Nikons) do not. I use simple add on "peanut slaves". They are all set for around 1/16 power which makes the duration very short and helps to freeze motion really well. Manual also makes the shot instant in that I can release the shutter at the time I choose and get an instant exposure. CLS takes a little time to relay the info to all the other flashes before the actual exposure.

    I came to the same conclusion on the CLS system (plus you must use certain $$$ flashes), it's better to dial in everything with optical slaves then to use that. Wireless trggers would be nice, but too much $$$ to do all the way around. I'd rather have 4-5 generic manual flashes with optical trigger and about $200 than 2 SB-900's

    Agreed. While I do have and SB900, SB800, and SB600, I seldom use CLS.
    For my hummingbird setup, once you get all the flash power and distances dialed in, it very repeatable and very easy to setup again.

    all me. chose milwaukee over makita, hitachi and dewalt. bosch would have been my 1st choice, but i'm not Bill Gate$. i got the newest model line up, the M18 which are not compatible with older 18 volt nicad or even the newer V18 li-ion line. anyway, i am now milwaukee's newest whore.

    if you're into the M18 line of tools, dave, they have a fantastic rebate deal going on till the end of september where you get a free tool of 5 to choose from with the purchase of 2 stand-alone batteries.

    Yeah, look at those arms. I bet she had to have somebody help her get the sledge up there. I bet she's not going to be much help with the demo.

    I bet I wouldn't mind if she showed up, either. ;)
