A mimosa tree stands right outside my office window. I get the totally cool experience of having hummingbirds hover 2-3 times a day, a few inches from my foot, with 3 layers of window -- glass, screen, shutter -- between us.
Considering the frequency of these visits, you would think a picture would be easy to get. But mimosa doesn't turn them on enough for them to linger and allow me to turn on the camera,
persuade a cat to get his head outta the blasted way (a much better hummer shot got blocked here by dear Downy),
and snap. So getting that top shot at all was a joy!
