7 :) and you got 1 fave! I only give 7 or more to hummer shots that are obviously NOT setup with a sugar laden feeder, visible in shot or not and those that are plainly note like this one. Note that I gave you a higher score than mine was averaging at the time. Who'd give this a 2, 3, 4 or 5? Envy. Sloth. Greed and no doubt they never saw the shadow. An 8 without the eye catching bumblebee...

I just wish I could see his wing against the dark background - the wonderful shadow will have to do. Delightful catch, well composed. Voted earlier.

SMILE from me, this is adorable, right up there with ET flying across the moon. A one time chance, how lovely you were ready for it. Instant fav! And a Gilded Lily.
