|Well this was difficult. They won't stay still even when hovering. They just vibrate. I have a feeder and we have a lot of flowers that they like.
Used my Nikon 135mm F2.8 lens, sort of prefocused and set it at F11, 125 and 100 ISO. Hint, go with higher shutter speed
Ok first a flower at F2.8 some blow out here.
Next first attempt, these guys are fast, after this I set camera to rapid fire, burst of 2-3 frames.
A little better.
