We've had a hummingbird or two buzzing around the pots of flowers outside all summer long. It is of course particularly attracted to the red flowers, but it comes to a lot of different flowers.

But I've managed only one picture, and this a black silhouette against the white garage door, taken from 30 feet away.

On the other hand, I've had several other close encounters with the hummingbird, without my camera near at hand. I've been up a ladder with a red paint can in my hand, and been buzzed closely by the hummingbird on four different occasions. A little disconcerting when you're up a 20 foot ladder - but it obviously likes the colour red!
