Here’s what Ken Christison said about his hummingbird photo:
I spent an hour and a half trying to get a hummer centered on a pink background while working on a lantana blossom. I just can’t seem to get them trained right since this fellow, an immature ruby throat, kept towards one side of the blossom. The pink background is blossoms on a nearby crepe myrtle.
Thanks for sharing it with us, Ken!
