In this image, the thirsty supplicant approaches one of the the tanker farms that my sister operates in support of indigent hummingbirds under a grant from the National Sugar Trust.

Strobist info: I put a YN560-II on a stand to the right of the feeder at 4 o'clock, and a YN560 on a light stand to the left of the feeder at 8 o'clock to throw some light on the hummer. I used an exposure that allowed some ambient light to appear in the image. The strobes were in manual mode and were triggered by a Yongnuo RF=603N.

If you like pictures of these tiny terrors you might enjoy my Hummingbirds set. www.flickr.com/photos/9422878@N08/sets/72157627149575339/...

This is a soft pastel rose image. I ran water from my water hose over the rose petals to make the image.
