- Description: A female Ruby Throated Hummingbird, coming towards the house, and a feeder that's there. The time of day, f/stop, and shutter speed causes the woods in the background to appear black. I know some people prefer the bird flying into the picture, instead of out of it. Sometimes going against the standards works. I thought this was one of those times. I had it printed to a 12"x18" size, and am going to frame it and hang on living room wall.
- Gear: Nikon D7000, Tamron AF 70-300mm VC lens
