[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a rare moment of rest for humming bird to sit since they are usually seen darting from one flower to another in their quest for high calories energy drinks like nectar of the flowers.
Nectar, either from suitable flowers or sugar water solutions, is the most abundant and most popular source of hummingbird food. The large amount of sucrose in nectar gives hummingbirds the necessary energy for their high metabolism and energetic lives. Because nectar is liquid, it also supplies the birds’ necessary water, and hummingbirds do not typically drink from other water sources, though they will use water for preening and bathing.
Thanks for visiting.

Hi Muhammad,
Not often that you see a Humming bird at rest. Could have been a bit sharper but given the rarity this is pretty good.

Bom dia dear friend,

Lovely composition with vivid and beautiful colors.
Excellent light, contrast and sharpness.
Very well done.
