Broad-billed Hummingbird Female on Nest Photo

This photo of a female Broad-billed Hummingbird on its nest was taken on May 4th, 2008 on the outskirts of Tucson, Arizona.  We have a favorite B&B here that has their own 40+ acres of Sonoran Desert land.  They've got plenty of fountains and flowers right around the hacienda itself, and coupled with the surrounding desert landscape, it's a true birding paradise. 

This little gal was sitting on a nest...on a trailing vine, right outside our door at the hacienda!! You literally had to duck to move around her!  This is the only photo I took of her, as I didn't want to disturb her nesting.    Photo taken with Canon 20D, 400 5.6L.
