He did an about turn and took off. He gave me the backside view which upon seeing I thought how nice of him. Funny how he spread his little tail feathers.

How do you get these shots? I've tried shooting hummers when they come around our yard but they move too fast for me.
This is a fine shot -- and this POV is a bit different and very creative. Your title created a smile.
