This adult male hummingbird routinely sat on the Shepard’s crook and guarded one of our bottle. In the heat of the day, however, he would sneak over to the shade of the honeysuckle vine for a respite. Of course he could still see, and defend, “his” bottle from that vantage point. He knew who kept his bottle filled for him so he was cooperative when I decided I ought to photograph him amongst the blossoms. Photo was taken handheld with a Canon 60D camera and a Canon 70-300mm lens.
