Hummingbird Moth – Arizona

It can take years to capture a quality Humming Bird Moth photograph.   Yes, they can be seen, but it requires luck or the knowledge of their habits to get a quality photo.  It is best to find these remarkable insects in the early dawn.  Whenever I see them past 8AM they seem to be en route to “another location”.  I have never seen a faster flying insect and if they are not feeding in a particular location for several minutes, getting a photo is near impossible.  This particular morning in Prescott Arizona, at about 7AM, I grabbed about 100 epic photographs of this Humming Bird Moth!  He was solo and stayed on this bush for 10 minutes!  More photos to come!

For the second year, CrossFit Inc, Coach Greg Glassman, Dave Castro, Tony Budding and a gang load of other all-star CrossFit.com employees have brought the CrossFit world to television, via ESPN.  Tonight, was a great night, watching the first installment of the 2012 CrossFit Games on Direct TV channel 209 (ESPN 2).  The 2012 CrossFit Games will air more than 100 times between now and the 2013 CrossFit Games.

Two of these bad boys (Canon 600EX-RT), a Canon 5D Mark III, and five practice shots later, I got the photos above.  It is a pleasure to use these new flashes. The best compliment I can give these “speedlites”, is to buy a third.

 

CrossFit Games Media

The 2012 CrossFit Games must have had 300 media/media related personnel.  I remember hearing that the official CrossFit media team took over 40,000 stills on Friday (day 2).  This guy in the photo is a photographer from Peru. These LED signs that many of us squatted in front of, made the 90+ degree stadium even hotter.
