Humming Bird sharring a meal with ants at a feeder

We recently set up a humming bird feeder in our yard and saw several birds visiting it regularly. I spent several days gradually getting closer to the feeder with my camera so they became comfortable with me. Eventually I was able to get very close and using a 300mm lens and soft flash captured this image
