Hummingbird feeding on a Chinese lantern Blossom

I was out in my garden when morning and noticed a hummingbird feeding on a Chinese lantern Blossom. I quickly went in to get my camera by the time I have returned the bird was gone. I waited a while and sure enough the bird returned to get its morning fix of nectar. Able to capture this image using my house backdrop creating a white background.
