[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Today i made a trip to the L.A. Aboretum in Arcadia California. I saw two people staring at a tree. They told me they saw what appeared to be a hummingbird building a nest. I parked under the tree for about 20 minutes and sure enough i got this shot. I probably didn't do a totally great job with this, but i really love it.

Hello Michael,
Fine capture of a rare sight on TN: a hummingbird building a nest. Though there is no exif, I guess you used flash and used it effectively to produce a pretty sharp and well-lit shot with appropriate BG.
TFS,
Regards, Ivan

Hi Michael,
As Rob and Ivan said it's a very nice documentation shot. In TN we don't often see photos of hummingbirds building a nest. Well done and TFS
