Hummingbird
Lens: DA*300 Camera: Pentax K-1 Photo Location: Bradley County, Arkansas USA ISO: 200 Shutter Speed: 1/350s Aperture: F4.5

A ruby-throated hummingbird checks out the tiny flower of Fameflower (Phemeranthus parviflorus) which unfortunately had closed for the day.
Fameflower is one of my favorite small native plants. The flowers are beautiful, but are open for only about three hours each summer afternoon.

Very nice detail! I like the monochrome effect, too.

I hate to arrive some place and discover they've closed for the day. I guess he should have used the Internet to check its hours before leaving home.
