Artist's Description

I often set difficult image goals for my self with my photography. This image is one of those goals achieved but not as well as I would like, it is not as sharply focused as I like.
We have two hummingbird feeders at our home here in Southeast Missouri and so many hummers that they eat over 64 oz of sugar water a day. It is normal to see ten or fifteen of them flitting around the feeder at any time.
I see them at the feeders with their long tongue sticking out all the time, like they are licking their lips, so I could take images of them with their tongues our easily. However I concentrate on shooting them in flight rather than sitting at the feeder so it is not that normal to catch one flying with their tongue sticking out like this young immature male. You can also see the ruffeled feather where it has been fighting with other hummers.
