Point and shoot.

Something I caught over the weekend.

I left a hummingbird feeder out for the past several months and treated my backyard guests to a daily free meal. As they are accustomed to the feeder, I set up my lighting and camera equipment and left it out, unmanned for an entire day. The hummers were cautious at first, then curious. As they realized the gear posed no threat, they resumed their normal feeding pattern – busiest feedings are dawn until about 10am and dusk up until just after 7pm. They come back every 10 minutes and often fight over the feeder. The males are more cautious than the females, who linger and feed for almost two minutes. The males will take a dip and immediately fly off.
