Feeding Time at the Mexican Snowball

I captured this little beauty feeding in the early evening at a Mexican snowball (E. elegans) succulent in my backyard.


I was setup to capture some shots of the moon late afternoon, shooting through the Hexanon 80-200 F3.5 two-touch zoom with my 2x Hexanon converter behind it - hence the graininess.  I believe this is an Anna's Hummingbird, common in the area - she and her mate frequent our backyard and seem to have staked it out as theirs.

Here she is darting in for a drink.  She landed for me once to pose, but the shots were a bit too soft for my liking.
