I desaturated the background in the first pic to make the bird pop a little more. The original follows:

Nice capture Dawn! Very hard for me to get one on the fly as they just don't stay in the same place long enough! LOL

Thanks Dawg !

I think it was all luck - I had just gotten zoomed in to where I needed to be and she flew in. I got three shots off before she flew off. One of the shots she isn't even in, the other only shows her green back amongst the green leaves. I sat on the pavement for at least another 30 minutes and she never came back. I sounded like Rice Crispies when I finally got up - Snap, Crackle, Pop !

Excellent pic! Not too many hummers 'round here, or at least they're not around long!
