Our new Nikon D5100 camera

After talking about it for a couple of years we finally purchased our new entry level DSLR Nikon D5100 camera. We hope this camera will give us the ability to take better pictures of hummingbirds and the flowers they like. We also plan on trying to get a few videos of hummingbirds using this camera if we can.

Below are a couple of pictures we took with this camera recently. The pictures are not about hummingbirds because it’s winter and we don’t have any here right now. We’ll probably need the time before the hummingbirds come back to learn how to use this camera properly.

    Beautiful orchid picture. Nice details. Did you use natural light or a flash?

    Thank you for the nice words regarding the orchid picture. Can’t really remember if it was or wasn’t but am guessing it was with the flash. Was one of the first photos taken with the camera and was at night so guessing it was.

    Thanks for the update. I’ve been reaching new cameras as we tend to shoot a lot of tropical flowers photos and are due for an upgrade.
