That sure is nice! Did you just happen upon that shot or were you waiting for the hummer? Do you remember your settings for this? I have never had the pleasure of seeing hummingbirds feeding in the wild.
Thanks, Lisa, for asking about the EXIF. I couldn't figure out why my images were so noisy when I was processing them. Now I know why. I shot this at ISO 1600, F9 at 1/4000 sec in Aperture priority, 340mm. (Forgot to check the setting on my camera!) I can see these Mexican Sage plants from my home office window. Actually I planted them to attract humming birds, but the hummers rarely stick around...especially when I step outside to photograph them. I got lucky today and just kept snapping hoping I would get one or two as the hummer danced from one flower to another.
