Female Ruby Throated Hummingbird at backyard zinnias

Photo is of female ruby throated hummingbird going flower to flower in our zinnia flower bed. I went out to capture the brilliant colors of the zinnias and while snapping flower pictures she flew into the middle of the zinnias. She went to 3 or 4 flowers and I just started snapping shots.
