13th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
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. I make attempts at chirping the way they do and sometimes they reply; as seen here.
