Seeing hummingbirds fly around in areas other than where you have set up a feeder and sit hopeful is super exciting for me. I’m used to only ever seeing them in very specific situations, so to be walking around and then suddenly going “Oh! A hummingbird!” is pretty cool.
To have my camera handy at the same time is incredibly rare, so I am thankful I was in a situation where both of those instances happened simultaneously, as this was the result.
I took this with my 150-600mm lens, shooting at 1/1000 of a second and f6.3 and ISO 1000.
