This morning I awoke to find one of our neighbor's ruby-throated hummingbirds sipping from the rosemary bush in our garden. So beautiful! Such glorious color!  But of course, as soon as I reached for my camera, he flitted off to the apple tree next door and sat there, scolding me noisily for interfering with his breakfast.

Since the best I was able to do was capture his silhouette, I added a couple of other images to give this final piece a bit more life. But isn't it wonderful, to think that a silhouette can be so distinctive; that just the outline of his figure says hummingbird so clearly?
