I took this at the Arizona Sonoran Desert Museum, which is like a combination of a zoo, botanical garden, and geology museum.

There's a hummingbird aviary with a wide variety of species. This is the best photo I got, probably because the bird is perched. Hummingbirds are hard to capture in flight!



Sony F717, 48.5mm F2.4, 1/80 sec with flash (Program AE).

Great looking photo; subject color blends real nice with the background; curved beak pointing upwards harmonizes in a nifty way with that little light sprout under the bird. Kewl shot overall.

PS -I would personally have kept away from thedirect center subjectcrop, but that stuff is purely accepted rules of practiceand subjectivity.

Nice photo of a male Broad-billed Hummingbird, it is possibly the most beautiful of all North American hummingbirds. The Desert Museum's hummingbird aviary is a great place to see and photograph hummers up close.

Most Broad-billed Hummingbirds migrate to Mexico for the winter with typically only a handfull remaining north of the border. Remarkably, there is one staying in Garden City, Kansas, at this time. Photos of the bird have been posted on several internet sites.
