Savoring the Nectar


This little guy is savoring the nectar of this agave plant while I was savoring this shot.  I've captured quite a few of these little hummingbirds but, I think this might be the clearest shot I've gotten.

On a scale of 1 to 10, this photo is an 11!!! Superb. I love the rather muted colors, the light is perfect and the wee bird is sharp! Great job!

Beautiful! I've only been able to get them drinking from feeders but not in a natural setting like this.
