Mommie Hummingbird on her nest, <1m outside the front window of my flat in a bottlebrush tree, shot with a very old f/5.6 200mm lens with an extension ring at wide open at 1/60sec through the window screen. It was dark and hard to focus through the very dirty window screen, but I don't think she could see me behind the screen. Her nest is ~2.5m from my front door, but she generally ignores my comings and goings, except that loud shirts upset her, especially bright blue.
