Descending Broad-billed Hummingbird

I generally pick my hummingbird photos for the pose. You can't pose a wild bird, but you can change the probability of a type of pose by the kind of hummingbird feeder, and where you point the camera. I used high speed flash to freeze the motion of the wings, and a white cardboard in the background to concentrate on the bird, (not quite) the whole bird, and nothing but the bird. This is my choice for almost all of my hummingbird photos.
