Quoting Microshnik:
That's adorable! How did you catch that??

Thanks! Around sunset they become more desperate and less flighty/fighty. So I stood almost under the hummingbird feeder, focused on the moon and shot in burst mode 10 frames per second. It took a lot of misses to get one that was decent.

If I could have I'd put the hummingbird in focus, but in the choice between bird and moon, I knew the moon wouldn't come out as good as the bird if out of focus from past experience.
