This is another shot that I planned and anticipated for a long time. I carefully positioned my new hummingbird feeder so that the lilac tree would be in the background. I got lucky. The hummers found the feeder within a day of me hanging it up.
This is a male ruby-throated hummingbird. This particular guy has a small white patch of feathers next to its right eye.
This shot was made with my D7000 and the old 300mm F4 lens from about 15 feet away.
