Sometimes you get lucky.

Ruby-throated hummingbird, Rondeau Provincial Park, Ontario, Canada, June 4, 2019.

I was taking photos of butterflies in a honeysuckle bush when this hummingbird started feeding.

Archilochus colubris
A hummingbird's wings beat between 50 and 200 flaps per second depending on the direction of flight, the purpose of their flight and the surrounding air conditions. An average hummingbird's heart rate is more than 1,200 beats per minute.
