Black-chinned Hummingbird and Rocky Mountain Bee PlantBlack-chinned Hummingbird and Rocky Mountain Bee Plant – Nikon D300, f5.6, 1/2000, ISO 640, Nikkor 200-400mm VR with 1.4x TC at 400mm, natural light, not baited

The opposite of cold, gray, windy and rainy is summertime in my mind so I thought that today I would post some thing from a warmer, brighter and calmer day and what could be more summery than a Black-chinned Hummingbird feeding on Rocky Mountain Bee Plant?

This image transports me back to August of last year on Antelope Island when the hummingbirds were migrating through. Blue skies, nice light, a slight breeze and warm temps. Ah.
