Ruby-throated hummingbird

Pentax K-3
Pentax-F* 300mm f4.5 plus Pentax 1.4x converter (420mm)
1/3200 sec. f8
ISO 1600

This season we have nearly a dozen hummers crowding the three feeders on the property, so it's easy to sit down in the living room and shoot the birds through its optically flat picture window. I was lucky to stop the wing as it reached the end of its reverse stroke. I also used the handy free Mac app called TouchRetouch to remove the red nectar feeder from the left side of the frame.
