We are down in San Diego today to shoot an event at the San Diego Yacht Club. Nice setting for a party! We arrived today and will be shooting for most of tomorrow. This evening we were having a glass of wine just off of the golf course, with my camera close by, and I saw this hummingbird hovering a couple of feet from me. I had my Canon 40D and 200mm (with a 1.4x adaptor) in my lap and got off some shots before he took off. The lighting and shutter speed were well matched and I was happy to get this image showing the awesome speed of the wings.
