I prefocused on it while hummer was still sitting there. Then waited for it to fly off, knowing that it would be back shortly. When I saw it flitting back, I pointed the camera at the branch, and held down the shutter button (high speed burst), hoping to get something interesting. Manual mode/auto iso, f/6.3, 1/1600 sec., camera chose iso 500..

Exif: Camera: Canon Canon EOS 5D Mark III; Shutter Speed: 1/1600; Aperture: f/6.3; ISO: 500; Orientation: 1; Date: 2020:11:23 15:28:45
