Taking pictures of hummingbirds is an exercise in patience.
Prefocused on a point. Wait for the hummingbird to appear. take the shot. Hope that one of many shots is in focus, the wings are still, the pose is balanced and the lighting is correct.
This picture was taken on a rainy day. You might notice a water droplet on her beak and water on her forehead. It turned out to be a perfect day for shooting hummingbirds. They were active because they like the rain. It was cooler so I was comfortable with the camoflage cover over me. The lighting was even and brought out the backround colors. I was off from work and my wife was out doing errands so I had the time to spend waiting for this beauty to show up!

Okay well... the original has charm but is a little bit odd and small... this is colorful and has a charm about it too! Love the bokeh and details!
