17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
My backyard hummingbird guarding his feeder.

I have two hummingbirds I see daily. They seem to play as they both come into the feeder, sometimes quite aggressively. On this day, I caught the one seeming to be on the look out for the other, perched atop of the feeder pole. It was remarkable to see and even more remarkable that I was able to get the picture.
