2017—D500 And Flash

A very cooperative female Anna’s hummingbird allowed me to move in close with my Nikon D500 and 300mm lens with SB5000 speed light attached while she was focused on the bubble in the fountain, the target for her morning bath.   Auto Area AF worked like a charm.  I was crouching down at minimum focusing distance, about 4 feet away from the fountain.  The hummer was undeterred.
