Hummingbird balancing on a balloon flower

Hummingbird is balancing on a blue balloon flower. I had just picked up the flower at a local nursery, by this time in the season my hummingbirds notice different things right away. So this little bird came right away to check out the flower, and ended up staying on top of it for a bit. Very happy moment for the hummingbird and myself.
