Title: Male Broad-billed Hummingbird Feeding on Ocotillo
Author: FocusOnNature

Category: Hummingbirds in Action
Views: ?
Description: I made this image on private property in Madera Canyon, Arizona. Unfortunately, we did not have many hummingbirds because most of them were across the road at one of the Lodges that had 30 hummingbird feeders! But everything came together when this gorgeous bird finally came to feed on this lovely red Ocotillo.

Incredible capture! Outstanding detail and color! Mind if I ask you what equipment you were using?

Thanks, Jeffrey! I used a Canon 1DX, Canon 300mm f/2.8 + 1.4x teleconverter. Exposure was ISO 800, 1/125 sec at f/14. I exposure for the background manually and then use high speed flash for my subject.
