Hummingbird 1 – Coming In For A Landing

Throughout the summer, Ann diligently maintains a half-dozen hummingbird feeders on the deck behind our house.  This means that she is mixing new hummingbird nectar almost every day.  I think she’s been through about 50 pounds of sugar so far this season, keeping the little fuckers humming.
So over the weekend I finally got my camera out, mounted the telephoto lens, and sat back with the remote control and shutter on burst.  Every hundred frames or so you get a good one.
For the record this was shot with the Olympus OMD-EM5 Mark II, at 1/500th sec @ f/2.8, ISO 1600; the file was transferred to my iPhone and all the editing was done with Snapseed on the phone.  I haven’t even looked at the files on the big computer yet…
