Description This photo is a result of both planning and luck. This nectarine tree is only one of this ruby-throated hummer's favorite spots. That day was partial cloudy and if this moment was captured with sunlight, the lighting would have been too harsh. Of the many attempts that week, only one of this type of photos was captured. The nectarine blossom was beautiful but little did I know, a fungal infection occurred that almost killed this tree.

I mainly shoot landscape photos in the Western US and Canada, particularly Yosemite as it's my favorite place on Earth. I have also been known to make friends with hummingbirds.
