I was ready for the hummer Sunday morning, sitting outside with my coffee and my long lens. I was happy to see that he hovered instead of perching on the feeder while he sipped the sugar water so I was able to get several shots with movement. The wings are still blurry with the shutter speed set at 1/250 but these three shots give a sense of the figure 8 motion of the wings. By the time I increased the shutter speed to 1/500, he had decided to sit on the feeder instead of hover.

Focal Length 400mm, ISO 640, f/5.6, 1/250
