A hummingbird in midflight feeding on a bird of paradise in San Diego

This bird of paradise sits outside my wife's aunt's house in San Diego, California. Every morning as we ate breakfast while visiting her, this little humming bird would come feed on the flower. So, I got up extra early one morning and waited in one spot for about an hour to catch some shots of it.
