Ruby-Throated Hummingbirds nest (NWF Photo of the Day, Sept. 5th 2012)

    Newer Older

    Me, and two friends of mine had one of those unforgettable photographic experiences with this Ruby-Throated Hummingbird nest. Couldn't have dreamed of a better location and conditions. Had a great time shooting with two friends of mine. Thanks for sharing this with me Matthew and great shooting with you and Dan both that day. Just an incredible sight to witness. A moment in nature I will not soon forget. Managed to get one with the mother's tongue sticking out as the little ones look on.
