Hovering Hummingbird

I shared this on Facebook over the weekend, but wanted to post it here as well.  This is a female Ruby Throated Hummingbird hovering over the Salvia flower.  The light in the eye is the result of the 580EX II flash, which also helped to freeze the wing motion.  For more information on Hummingbirds on Long Island, check this blog by Paul Adams who runs the Hummingbird Sanctuary in Baiting Hollow.
