Description

aperture f8, shutter 1/125, lens 50mm, location - In my front yard, I found this baby humming bird abandoned and looking sick. I feed it with an eye dropper and some sugar water and left it out side in the bushes. I did not have too much hope that it would survive the night. The next morning I was amazed that this little fella was humming around the flowers and allowed me to get close enought for this shot. I was about one foot away.
