2013—Day 174—Drab and Dreary

I noticed some hummingbird activity in the yard late this afternoon so I attached my 70-200mm zoom and went outside to see what I could see on this unusally overcast summer day. A hummer landed on an interesting, unobstructed twig and he seemed to have his eye on me the entire time, waiting for me to leave so he could enjoy his feeder in peace. I hear him at the feeder now that I’m back inside. These shots are rather drab but the day is drab and dreary and I think this is the female because it has very little color.
