Default Birds, Birds, Birds--Hummingbird

I was just able to get two decent shots of this hummingbird feeding on the Agapanthus in the back yard.

Just beautiful. The little hummer looks like a shimmering live jewel.

Thanks everyone.

Walter, I was using a Nikon D7000 with a Nikon 200-400mmVR f/4 Tele. I was sitting on the couch in my iving room with the sliding glass door to the patio open. The Agapanthus and hummer were about 20 feet away.
