The most difficult part of wildlife photography is not the photography but knowing where wildlife will be and then getting close. And it always helps when you get a great tip. Today a friend invited me today to watch the action at his hummingbird feeder. Sure enough, within just a few minutes a tiny male Ruby-throated Hummingbird arrived for a taste of nectar. At less than four inches long and with wings that beat 53 times per second, this little bird can both hover and fly backwards. The Ruby-throated is the only species of hummingbird that breeds in Delaware.
