Very good. Do you have the EXIF info?

I keep nectar in a Hummingbird feader but this time of year, they would rather visit flowers. However, I just noticed a quarter inch drop in the level since yesterday....Maybe??

And lovely wings

I was hoping someone would post one of these.
Great work. They are not easy to photograph.

I love hummingbirds, but don't see any where I live.

So thanks for sharing, Flutelady! The delay of the wings is beautiful.

Thanks for the lovely photo. Regarding timing and light - well captured!
