Broad-Billed Hummingbird (Cynanthus latirostris)

The lighting was perfect, and this Broad-Billed Hummingbird sat still for an unusually long time (at least a minute). Fortunately, I had my 300mm f/4 lens with 1.4x extender attached to my camera and ready to go. I took this photo at the Fanciful Flyers walk-in exhibit at The Living Desert wildlife & botanical park near Palm Springs, CA.
