I was sitting on a four foot ladder right next to his feeder.  I usually do not use 'on camera' strobe for these shots, but I was just fooling around seeing if I could get an unusual shot and this guy flew by.  I was shooting 8 frames/sec with the strobe at 1/16th power.  Luck has the most to do with it though.  Generally I get one good(unusual) shot per thousand.

Thanks! Worry about nothing, John! I'm so far behind I'd have to speed up to stop. I've been meaning to answer you last comment, but, as you may have noticed, I haven't. I'm spending less and less time on the computer and doing photography. I did get out today, but it was below 70 and; therefore, cold for us. Hopefully things will pick up in the spring. Happy New Year to you too! I hope you keep selling your little houses at a record pace. Keep in touch!
