Humming Along

Life was just humming along last night when my computer screen went black. Numerous attempts to restart it failed. Time to take it in for repairs. Luckily the majority of my work is backed up. If it is a fatal crash I won't lose too much. I try to back it up every couple of weeks or so. It's mostly just the time taken out to get it repaired. Living in a small rural town has its drawbacks. The nearest city of any size is an hour and a half drive. This morning I finally got a few decent chances to photograph hummingbirds. In early spring I had a lot of hummers come through. I put up the remainder of my feeders and they stopped coming. I tried photographing them a couple of mornings and not a single hum greeted my eager ears. This week there have been a few here and there so I gave it a go. I positively love one of the images. So here it is from me working on the families computer. God's precious love to all, chris Camera Equipment Used- Canon 7D, Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM Lens, Manfrotto 055XPROB Tripod with a Bogen 3055 Ballhead, (4)Canon 540EZ flashes set to 1/16th power with Isniper wireless remote flash triggers.
