Allens' Hummingbird #1 (D)

Allen’s Hummingbird (Selasphorus sasin).  This colorful hummer is a common summer resident along the California coast. They eat nectar and bugs. Crescent City, CA.  Note that his little tongue is out.

Canon EOS 1V camera with 600 F/4 L IS lens and 12mm and 25mm extenders.  Fuji Velvia 50 film at 1/1000 sec and F/4.  Gitzo tripod and Wimberly head.  I set up my camera in my living room with a feeder just outside the patio door.  (I needed the extenders in order to focus a few inches closer, as my living room wasn't quite wide enough.)  I placed a gold reflector behind the feeder (to the right) in order to get a little more light under the bird.
