Default Hummingbird in the city

Catching this fellow is quite a chore. He does not like the flash so all I get is one shot and then I have to wait about 15 min for him to return. Sometines I wait hours to get a shot that works. One does learn patience as a photographer

Taken with a Leica DLux 4, a compact camera

What a great photo! Great use of shutter speed (wings just the right amount of blur), and also of DOF (urban background just enough out-of-focus)!

Thank you Mole. I spend many hours trying to get this hummingbird right. He flies by several times and hour but only for a few seconds.
