A Morning Drink for a Hummingbird

A Morning Drink for a Hummingbird

I'm pretty excited about this image. It is probably, technically, my best hummingbird image to date. This was taken this morning with natural morning light and handheld with my Canon 7d and 400mm lens. I would scan these foxglove beard tongue wildflowers for any sort of activity to see if I could spot a hummingbird feeding. Needless to say, patience is required. As you can see, I was rewarded nicely with this image. I'm thankful I was able to make the most of the opportunity and light.
