Thanks folks!! I was set up to shoot on a feeder at about 8 feet but this one insisted on using a different feeder at 4 feet.

Awesome!!! I've been trying to shoot hummingbirds for a few years, so I know how tough it is. They're amazingly fast little critters. Great photo!

I downloaded it to take a look at the Exif data and saw that you used flash. I've never tried that. Does it bother the birds? I was afraid it would scare them away.

Thanks Dave. The flash doesn't seem to bother them at all. I made a mistake on the lens used for this shot. When I saw the f/2.8 in the data you posted I knew the shot was with the Nikon 70-200 lens because that is the only fast lens I have.
