Locked and Loaded Hummingbird

Something different. When hummers are getting ready to fight, tail flares are the standard move.  I shot this one intentionally as a silhouette in direct backlighting without exposure compensation, roughly +2 stops.  Anyway, I like the effect, and I like to take it to black and white with the contrast kicked up, and a blue filter to improve the sky.
