A ruby throated hummingbird approaches a flower.

After years of failed attempts to lure a hummingbird to my yard, this year I finally went all in! I planted an entire garden of hummingbird friendly flowers, and then waited. I spent weeks poised behind my camera, staring at my garden, until finally this little lady arrived and posed for her close-up!
