This almost-grown baby hummingbird was sitting on this twig. I was focused on her and then another bird came into the frame. I thought they were fighting. Lo and behold it was her mother feeding her! How awesome is that???? My reward for feeding the hummingbirds each summer. It makes me SO HAPPY!
Taken 9/6/10 in my yard. f/8.0, 1/500, 400mm. This won Viewer's Choice at GNPA Expo 2011!

Thank you Carla M and Carla C as well as Michelle. I was in the right place at the right time, clicking that shutter! A friend reminded me of the saying "F/8 and Show Up"....so true!! You gotta be there to get the shots!!

Anna Mary,

This is such an outstanding shot--one of my favorites out of the collection of fantastic images you've captured through the years. Hope the judges at BP love it, too!!

Thanks Johnnie, I entered it back when I took the shot and they only gave it an Editor's Pick :-( !! But I love it anyway!
