With Shelter In Place, I spent more time in the backyard and see more and more little birds there. Here are a few humming birds I took with the E-M1 X and E-M1 Mark III, all taken with the Olympus 300mm F3 IS Pro and sometimes with the MC-14 to add someone reach. All natural light.

Thank you @daveinamblerpa , @DenverDutchman and @DefectiveMonk

These are amazing pics! Any tips you would like to share?
I set up a feeder then just wait for them to come.
I shot in Pro Capture L at 1/2000s to 1/3200s with Auto ISO
Just observe their behavior..usually they go in the take a drink come back out, then go back in...so I just wait for them to pull out that the picture before they go back in.
I am lucky to have a few of them in my backyard so I can just sit and wait for them to come.

Mine is nowhere as sharp as those that are posted. But I thought I would just share.
