Artist's Description

Penstemons are one of the flowers loved by hummingbirds, which is exactly why they are planted in a local organic cooperative garden. The gardeners do all they can to attract birds and beneficial insects, and sometimes the photographer is the beneficiary, as in this case. I spent quite a while photographing this female Anna’s hummingbird, as she was very much at home in the garden. This is a completely natural image: no flash, handheld in late afternoon light, no compositing. (Olympus E-510 & Zuiko 70-300mm zoom at 120mm [240mm in full-frame 35mm equivalent]), 1/250 sec., f/8, ISO 400, handheld, filtered late afternoon sun)
