Hummer No. 2
RUBY-THROATED HUMMINGBIRD, GREEN, MICHIGAN, AUGUST 20, 2009
SMC Pentax-F* 300mm f4.5 ED (IF)
1/180 sec. f8 with on-board flash
It's back to photographing feathered birds, this time through the front plate-glass window of the Writer's Lair. The on-board flash brightened the scene on a rainy day and also highlighted the iridescence in this female hummer's back feathers. Sometimes flash gives a better image than sunlight, but not often.
