After being able to corner it and get ahold of it when I took it outside it sat in my hand for just a couple of seconds or so before zipping off. Amazing how light they are. Great Picture.
I found him unconscious in my driveway while I was cleaning my old truck camper. I think he hit it and knocked himself out. I thought he was dead at first but when he began to revive I handed him to my wife and grabbed the camera. I managed to get that one shot before he took off. It was pretty amazing and yeah, they are incredibly light and fast!
Between the hummingbirds and Baltimore Orioles I will have to refill each feeder once a day, especially in June and early July. Thats five feeders a day! The Orioles have a big appetite.
