Hummingbird sticking its tongue out at me

Many animals seem to do weird things for me when I take their photos; this one is partially sticking her tongue out at me (called a “blep”). The complimentary colors (greens and reds) just came together beautifully Taken at a high ISO (6400) and 1/200th shutter speed.
