I find it very difficult to capture hummingbirds, but nonetheless, I recently camped out by the feeder and tried my best.  We have ruby-throated hummingbirds here, and most of them are females.  One flew right up to me and hovered very near my face.  I wish I could have captured that.

The Hummingbird
By Harry Hibbard Kemp

The sunlight speaks. And it’s voice is a bird
It glimmers half-guessed half-seen half-heard
Above the flower bed. Over the lawn–
A flashing dip and it is gone.
And all it lends to the eye is this–
A sunbeam giving the air a kiss.
