I caught this young lady in the early morning bright sunlight,she was only about 10 feet away. It took about 50 shots of her coming and going to the feeder to get this one. I forced her to feed at a particular flower on the feeder by plugging all other flowers with screws. I then got a focus on the edge of the flower itself and just set there waited. She typical would drink from the feeder and back off about 4 or 5 inches for a second or two and then go back for more.When she finished she would go perch in a tree and digest her intake and return in about 5 minutes. Once I had her pattern down I was able to ambush more shots. I had to mute the camera as the noise of the shutter and shutter button chirp would frighten her. She left after about an hour.

Ambushed and didn't know it
