Early Summer Ruby-throated Hummingbird

Early Summer Ruby-throated Hummingbird

Despite difficult lighting due to thick cloud-cover, I managed this image of a ruby-throated hummingbird feeding from beautiful blooming foxglove beard tongue wildflowers. I am going to look forward to photographing these little birds more this summer under better lighting conditions. Just getting out this evening and trying was worth it.
