Cooperative Magnificent!

This female Magnificent Hummingbird was a magnificent model. I was waiting for the sun to come out from behind some clouds so I could get a much wider shot of this Yucca flower, the surrounding boulders and the Rincon Mountains and the building clouds in the distance. I had visualized the photograph I wanted several weeks ago and today was the day when all of the elements finally came together.
Almost as if she were being directed, immediately after the sun peaked out from the clouds, she zipped up to the flower and started feeding.
