On the Trail with a Nikon 300mm f/4: Hummingbird

Last of the Summer Hummingbirds

I had the opportunity this year to use the New Nikkor 300mm f/4 PF lens and I can say it is one of the finest telephotos I have ever used. Nikon has done this lens right and I appreciate it's lightweight, accurate focus, and supreme sharpness this lens can deliver some awesome photos. 

White-eyed Vireo

White-eyed Vireo

A busy bird of the thickets, most common in the southeast. Although the White-eyed Vireo usually stays in dense cover, it is not always hard to see; it will come up to examine and scold a birder who stands near the bushes and makes squeaking sounds. Even when it remains out of sight, its snappy song is distinctive. In Bermuda, where the bird is common, it is widely known as "chick-of-the-village," a good rendition of the song.
 As summer winding down I took an opportunity to set up a photo session overlooking my hummingbird feeders, with these diminutive and fast birds you need good light and a fast lens in order to capture a good photograph  In order to control lighting I set up a remote flash to assist when the little birds decided to feed late in the day. 

Overall I had a great time photographing one of my favorite birds and especially using this lens this year - what a winner.
