While visiting my mother in-law in early May I notice some hummingbirds gathering by the feeders. I figured they were migrating through and I didn’t want to pass up the opportunity of photographing one. Since this was more of a family gathering I didn’t bring my usual equipment. I got pretty close to the hummers and just waited and watched them come and go. I tried as I might but is wasn’t easy holding the D4 and 70-200 for long periods of time hoping one would come into my focal plane. I took a large number of shots but will only keep this one. I know they will be back in September so I’ll be ready.
Nikon D4, 70-200mm @ 95mm, f/2.8, 1/2000, SB-900, ISO 200
