Each new generation of hummingbirds that hang out at my feeder are more and more comfortable with my presence. They recognize me as the one who puts out the food and they often buzz around me while doing it. This little guy decided to pose for me and let me get within five feet for a photo/staring match. He looks a little angry here, but the dome offers such a boldness of colors at this angle.
