Anna's Hummingbird (April 2006)

Taken at the Boyce-Thompson Arboretum in Superior, Arizona. I'd been trying to photograph hummingbirds in the gardens with little success. I was taking a break when this bird alit on branch behind the bench I was sitting on. Moving very slowing I swung my camera around and got a few shots off. This is my favorite.

I can see why it's your favorite. The bird has a sweet, almost innocent expression; and the background is as soft as a blanket.

All things come to those who have the patience to sit and wait, well done it's a bottler.

One of my favorites - I have been trying for years to get a decent shot of one of these! Incredible!
