17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Hummingbird Feeding

While staying in the Santa Cruz Mountains in California, we visited the UCSC arboretum where we saw this Anna's hummingbird feeding. Weighing less than a nickle, they congregate near flowers or feeders, seldom still for more than a few seconds.
