Quick Shot


I had to be quick to catch this tiny little hummingbird approaching a cactus bloom.  They are so fast as they flit around blooms looking for the sweet stuff.  One of my favorite things to do at the Desert Botanical Gardens is to watch all the birds who inhabit the area.  They are constantly entertaining.

Great shot! I tried to photograph a hummingbird while I was in Cozumel and I failed dismally.
