Flying Nectar Faery

Flying Nectar Faery, originally uploaded by Fort Photo.

A Black-chinned Hummingbird hovers near a nectar feeder at my sister's place in southern Colorado last summer.

Strobist Notes: used 4 flashes positioned around the area I was expecting action in order to get the most detail. Once that was set up it was simply a matter of cracking open a beer and sitting on my sister's porch with a view waiting for things to happen. I sometimes think bird photography is my version of fishing. ;-)))
