Today's Photo of the Day was shot by Jerry Taylor and submitted to the Bird in Context Assignment.
"Great fun trying to capture photos of hummingbirds on their favorite food sources. The color of the flowers seemed to reflect the vibrance of the birds," says Taylor who used a Canon EOS 6D and Sigma 150-500mm lens to get the shot.
Photo of the Day is chosen from various OP galleries, including Assignments, Your Favorite Places and the OP Contests. Assignments have weekly winners that are featured on the OP website homepage and several images from the Assignment Gallery are featured in The Best Of Assignments section in print. To get your photos in the running, all you have to do is submit them.
