Rufous Hummingbird

All summer I’ve been trying to get a decent photo of one of these beautiful birds with no luck at all. This morning, when I wasn’t looking for them at all, this little gal buzzed right in front of me and started feeding on the petunias in one of my wife’s hanging pots. Luckily I had just returned from my morning hike and still had my camera bag hanging from my shoulder and was able to react quickly enough.

Finally!
