Hummingbird!

I took this picture last Saturday in a friend's front yard in Kokomo, Indiana. It was a brilliant September morning on a country road, surrounded by fields of soybean and corn. I was crouching very still, trying to get the best picture of the flowers illuminated by the morning sunlight, and the little guy just flew right into my field of vision, maybe six inches from my camera lens.

That's a beautiful photo. I love how he's got his little feet all tucked up, but one is visible.
