I'm Not Really a Picky Eater - Vancouver, British Columbia (Explored)

This is the next shot in my Hummingbird in the Garden Series. In this photograph, a hummingbird is feeding on an arugula flower. If you look cloely, you can see the pollen on its beak. I used to think that hummingbirds were picky eaters requiring certain flowers. However, this summer, I have observed them feeding on a variety of herb flowers, lettuce flowers, bean flowers, and some ornamental flowers. This photo was taken in low light conditions in June 2012, with my trusty Olympus digital camera. Enjoy.
