Caliope Hummer

Hi all. I have been absent from this forum for some time now, but I check the images now and then and I really enjoy them. I recently put out my hummingbird feeders, and the little buggers have arrived. Mostly I get Black-chinned and Rufous, but I have had a Caliope hanging around too. I decided to go for a shot tonight using my 300mm F/2.8 VR Nikkor with 2X teleconverter. Here is a reduced version of one frame from tonight.
Cheers,
Tyler
