Female Ruby Throated Hummingbird


I was outside topping up the bird bath and I noticed a couple of Hummingbird Moths flying around the Butterfly Bush.So I ran in the house and grabbed the old trusty 7-year-old 6 MegaPixel Canon S3 IS. When I got back out and was standing about 2 feet away from the moths a hummingbird buzzed me. It hovered about 6 inches from my ear and then went about its business as usual. I was able to capture these two shots. This is an amazing creature that never ceases to make me smile and appreciate life.
