Hovering over Coneflower

Hovering over Coneflower.
The Ruby-throated Hummingbirds spend a good deal of time feeding in the mornings on the nectar in Coneflowers. They will go to them after brief rainstorms as well. When I set up to photograph them, I will find a location that gives me a good view of the “feeder wars” as well as a group of coneflowers. The dominate bird of the feeder spent a little time hovering over the flowers the other day which was all the time I needed to get a few nice images.
