My Firecracker Bush is attracting the Ruby-throated Hummingbird. These tiny birds are very difficult to capture as they feed. I wanted to show motion and detail. I used a D4 Nikon 80-400mm lens f/4.5-5.6 ISO 640 F/5.6 1/1250 sec. I had to handhold the camera so I could move quickly to capture this image.
