Great catch Doug, what was your setup?

The camera is a Leica R8 with DMR digital back and plain matte viewscreen, lens is the 280mm f/4 APO-Telyt-R.  I also used an old beat-up Gitzo tripod and a folding camp chair  :)

I've kept the hummingbird feeders full for several weeks so there are always a few hummingbirds around; sometimes as many as a half-dozen.  For this photo I moved the feeder into evening sunlight.  One hummingbird (an adult male Anna's Hummingbird) has claimed the feeder as his own which keeps him quite busy chasing other hummingbirds away.  When one of the other hummingbirds comes to feed it's always on the alert for the dominant Anna's so I wait for the moments when it backs away from the feeder to watch for incoming missiles.
