Ruby Throated Hummingbird
Beautiful shot. I have always wanted to catch one in flight. What film did you use and what speed on your camera to catch this fine shot? Thanks.

Hi Tricia, thanks for your comment. I used Velvia 100 and shot at 125@F19. My flash was 30" from the bird. The lens was about 6' away. I used a 170-500mm lens but couldn't fill the frame so I used a 36mm extension tube. I set the background flash at F5 or 6.7. I took the feeder away and filled the flower with sugar water used in the feeder. Good luck.
