hummingbirdThis past Spring, a hummingbird returned to our backyard to nest, which was super rad,  but this is not that bird (nor its offspring). This  serendipitous shot was taken at the  zoo– I was shooting this thing sippin on some nectar, then it curiously zipped in front of my lens like whatwhatwhatwhatwhat and quickly  zipped out like coolcoolcoolcoolcoolcool and it was tighttighttighttightighttight.

The Living Coast Discovery Center (formerly Chula Vista Nature Center) is one of my favorite San Diego hidden gems.
