[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Not often do I get the chance to photograph one of these tiny birds in a relaxed pose. This pretty little female landed on a branch just above my head while I was attempting to photographing butterflies.

Ohio is home to one species of hummingbird, the Ruby-throated. I have seen them numerous times visiting the flowers in our gardens around home. I always take the time to watch their amazing aerial antics and never tire of their welcomed visits.

Ron, you were very fortunate to have an unexpected visitor coming your way. What a beautiful image of this female Hummingbird! The vertical branch as the bird's perch adds great appeal to the composition.
Thanks and regards.

Hi Ron,
Excellent, pin sharp photo with spectacular composition. You managed to capture the lucky moment perfectly, as the colors and lights are second to none, too (plus the background blur also). Very elegant image, the photo of the day on TN to me. Congratulations for the beautiful shot!
Kind regards, László

Hello Ron,

Hope you & family are OK. I have come to this late but this is indeed a very fine shot and you have availed the opportunity offered by the bird quite effectively. I think usually the females are easy to photograph than the mercuric males.Good shot in every way. And before I go... merry Christmas to you and your family and do also accept greetings for a brand new year too....so double greetings..... thanks for sharing this shot, take care,
Best regards/ Abid

Hi Ron
When I see hummingbirds they are usually in flight, so it is interesting to see this on a branch.
Good image, sharp details, splendid light.

TFS & regards
