14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
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.
