Peaceful hummingbird mother — Rancho Bernardo, San Diego, California

I made all of the hummingbird photos with a long lens from inside the house – one room had a clean line of sight to the nest in the lemon tree. All except this photo. I walked past the lemon tree one day and noticed that the mother stayed on the nest (perhaps she had gotten used to me when I opened the window and peeped at her with the camera). This photo is still cropped but I feel truly blessed that I was able to get this photo of her with a 105mm macro lens.

Print available in my store.
