Energetic Hummer Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner
Energetic Hummer
Energetic Hummer
I've been trying for a week to capture this Hummer. I guess it's OK. Canon EF 300 f/2.8L IS, 1/500 sec @ f/4.0. With their high metabolic rate it's amazing how much energy these birds need to keep going.

Great capture, Michael! I know how hard it is to try to get these guys into a frame. I had seen quite a few flying right in front of me so many times and always just missed the right moment. I guess I'm just not patient enough:) Love how clear those little feets are! Congratulations!
