CANON 400 f 5.6 L
F7.1 @ 1/800
ISO 1250

This female was feeding at a Bee Balm plant, which the hummingbirds this year, seem more attracted to, than in past seasons. Overall, it seems to be the best plant for hummingbird activity, among the different ones that I have tried to photograph at.
Next year, perhaps a different plant will be the favourite.

I guess they get tired of the same kind of food, too. :)

Lovely the way the little hummer seems to be floating into the flower, Paul!

Can sense the wing movement, nicely done with the SS.
