I am happy to see that these tiny migratory birds are coming to drink nectar now on the feeder and am hoping to get a good shot of the male this year who for me is more challenging to capture.
and am always working for the perfect shot. ..They usually are very difficult to photograph as they dart around with high speed but am pleased that she stood still long enough for this photo shoot.

Best View in light box! Thank you!!

    It's so rare that you get a photo op like this, a hummer sitting still that is. This really is an exceptional hummer portrait and so beautiful in every detail!
