Ivins, Utah. Aug. 22, 2013. This male has been here since he hatched early this summer. He goes back and forth between the mimosa tree, the oleander and the dead cholla cactus. Camera is a Sony A77 a Sony 70/400 zoom. It focuses down to 5 feet even at 400 where it’s at most of the time. At 5 ft. and 400mm, a hummingbird is almost full frame. This was taken from a tripod and enlarged in photoshop. 1/125 sec. F5.6 ISO400.
