One of the things I like about photography is challenging myself to look at things from different perspectives. I was trying to get a good photo of one of the ten gazillion hummingbirds around my in-laws front yard feeders, but there was just too much distraction.
So I laid down on the ground, between the feeders. At first I worried that me being there would scare them away, but apparently the contents of the feeders is food of the hummingbird gods.
The color's not perfect, but it's a much cleaner shot, don't you think? Totally worth getting pine needles in my hair.
