Hummingbird in the smoke. Oregon wildfire 2020

Devastating wildfires in Oregon September 2020. This photo of a Hummingbird eating was taken during the state of emergency in Sandy,Oregon with fires only a couple miles away. We were on a level two evacuation and came to check on our house when I found my friend happily drinking the nectar out back. Bittersweet amongst the horrible smoke.
