Friendly neighborhood hummingbird

Taken with a used Sony A6000 “beater” camera I bought off ebay recently. Also featuring a manual Tamron 70-300mm lens adapted lens (which I also bought off eBay) via a Fotodiox adapter.

Shooting without image stabilization and a manual lens makes me feel like I’m actually doing something.

Thanks to the friendly neighborhood hummingbird for the fun poses. And thanks to Fotodiox for sharing this on their Instagram.
