Ruby-throated Hummingbird (Archilochus colubris)

This was taken last week in my backyard. Every year I plant the Canna Lily bulbs at the end of the deck. If everything comes together perfectly I can get lucky and get the image that I envisioned.
Thanks to everyone who viewed my last image and I hope you enjoy this one.
