I set up hummingbird feeders in my backyard last year and have been photographing them. It's a good pandemic hobby, backyard, no one around, lot's of time. At first I was concerned that I was too close but over time I've come to realize they could care less if I'm 5 feet away or 25 feet away. Also they are super territorial and aggressive. I've taken thousands of images. Trying for more flight shots now 1/320th or 1/4000th sec seems best for capturing wings, otherwise it's just a blur. Also if you shoot hummingbirds switch your shutter to mechanical over electronic or rolling or you'll get some weird wing artifacts. Just sharing.

Well it's true. Beautiful but really dumb.

Nice pics.
