17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World

An Anna's hummingbird feeds her tiny baby at their nest. Some friends came home from an extended vacation to find the nest built on their back porch and invited me over to document the little one's growth. Only two weeks after this photo was taken, the baby had fledged!
