Was doing some weeding on my back bank and stopped to smell the Stargazer lilies. (I do actually stop and enjoy occasionally.) I was about 3 inches from a flower sniffing and a Hummingbird came zipping in and going from flower to flower.

I stood completely still and he/she flew almost right into my face and went in to the blossum I was enjoying. It buzzed right near my face for nearly 30 seconds.

Then along came another and chased the first off.

Brought a big smile to my face. Thumbs up
