Entrance, stage left
Actually, this guy is most likely in hover position, which he takes to guard his wider environment and perhaps rest between sips of nectar. Identifying this position is key for getting well framed photos. Ordinarily, I would cut in half the empty space on the left side of the photo, and this bird would be entirely within the frame. Because he's not my target bird, I'm disregarding this info. We still have not seen my target bird, this hour, so we'll see how well I do with this pre-focused, pre-framed position.
