Like usual, this was harder than I expected. The Hummingbird was in a tree on my parents back deck. They have two hummingbird feeders and I suspect this guy "owns" one of them. I took this video with a 400mm lens and 2x teleconverter. This is almost the close focus limit - without the teleconverter, I wouldn't be able to get close enough to fill the frame with this small bird.

In the original, the branch the Anna is on is moving quite a bit. The background branches are also moving in their own directions. I had to write a script to stabilize on the bottom branch.
