Ruby Throated Hummingbird
Photographer: Linda Morgan
Location: Missouri, USA
Every year, I plant a large area in a mixture of Zinnias, Bee Balm, and native Black Eyed Susans. Then, other than pulling the occasional weed or clump of Crab Grass, I leave it alone. It grows wild and and attracts scores of insects, bees, butterflies, hummingbirds, and Goldfinches
Digital Alterations: 
Artistic cropping, very slight adjustments to lighting and contrast, slight adjustment with Nik's Color Efex Pro to lighten center and darken edges of frame
