The Last One?

Many observers think they might have seen their last hummer this fall:

"This seems to be the last one coming through. Arrived at dawn and drank for a long time. Next two days were rainy and humid. October 15 and 16 have been nice days but no visitors." —Spencer in Berwyn, Illinois

Q: Do you think the photo was taken before the bird ate, or after? Why?
