I walked out on my porch and this beautiful little hummingbird was taking a rest. I thought he was hurt, since his wings were out. Usually the hummers fold their wings in close to their bodies when they stop flying.
He patiently awaited while I went in to get my camera, then crouch down and move within inches to make pictures of him. He allowed me to snap a couple images and then he flew away. I guess he was just tired. What a treat for me!
