Photography Contest Second Place
**SMALL BUT MIGHTY** ACBP - Elective
Description: To round out my elective selections I felt I needed to add this image because it shows my love of and ability to take good macro shots. I spent all summer getting this chance which proves to me that I can be patient in order to get the perfect shot - a quality that all good photographers need to succeed in capturing the quintessential shot. The conditions had to be just right: overcast or deep shade, shallow depth of field to showcase the bird, and just to be able to get a hummingbird at rest. I was practically holding my breath the entire time I was shooting because it had to be hand-held under not-the-best conditions.
Set-up: Hand-held, ISO 800, aperture wide open at f/5.6 with a shutter speed of 1/50 second!
