A Michigan Summer Sunset

We finished up a mountain bike ride near sunset at a trail in the countryside and took this photo as we were packing up to leave. I live in suburbia so it’s difficult to get good sunset shots so when in the outlying areas I always hope to be at a spot when there is a nice sunset.

This little guy was not easy to get a picture of. I had to sit on the patio with my 70-210mm zoom lens and wait for him and then take a bunch of rapid fire shots. He sits on the telephone wire for long periods of time and then comes in for a fix on the purple salvia. The local garden store told me hummingbirds love purple salvia and he was right.
