Hummingbird, Bartlett Pond, White Horse Beach, Manomet, Plymouth, Massachusetts, USA
I can't tell you how many times this summer I have tried to take a picture of a hummingbird for the few seconds it stays still to feed. I want to capture the green iridescent coloring next to a red bee balm flower. That requires the bird be positioned at a certain angle relative to the sun for the color to pop. Mostly, I have been unsuccessful - but, this one, I like! It's fairly sharp for a point and shoot camera. And if truth be told, I was sitting in a chaise lounge about 15-20 feet away and didn't even get up for fear I might scare him away. The ultimate in lazy-man photography!
