Hummingbird Captured With Holga Camera

Until this photo was taken I had never seen a hummingbird in person. I suppose that’s because they are very tiny and super fast. My Holga film camera comes with me on trips to help me concentrate on composition. Low tech to say the least. This one has a flash which is a really big deal for a Holga. A maximum of 16 shots for a 120 roll of film. Tons of patience required to make this shot happen. I pre-focused on the bird feeder so I was ready once a hummingbird came into frame. It would be there for two seconds and then vanish into the sky.
