And now for something completely different. During my camping trip with my son's Boy Scout troop last weekend, I managed to get 30 minutes or so to play with a long lens and flash near the hummingbird feeders at the South Llano River State Park ranger station. They had 6 feeders and the birds were clever enough to avoid the ones near where I was doing my very best tree impression. Nevertheless, a few ventured close enough for me to grab a shot or two and this was the best of the collection. It's about a 50% crop from the original frame.
I'm pretty sure this is a female Black Chinned Hummingbird but, if I'm wrong, please let me know.
