I almost caught one of the hummingbirds on camera

I first saw a female hummingbird, which I wasn’t sure of since she zipped away before I got a good look - I couldn’t rule out hawk moth. Then I saw a male, but didn’t have the camera handy, and he zipped away pretty quickly too.

This evening I saw the female, had the camera handy… and the darn thing was almost out of battery and struggled to focus on the feeder blowing in the wind. I finally just started taking shots even though I knew most wouldn’t come out well, hoping it would catch things just right. Alas, she zoomed away after only four. You can at least kind of tell it’s a female Ruby-Throated Hummingbird.
