Hummingbird sighting!

So for all the time and hours I spend working in the field I had never seen a hummingbird here...until just now! Just north of the PI work truck is a beautiful alligator flag marsh. While refilling my backpack sprayer I noticed a hovering critter at some flag blooms. Upon further inspection I realized it was a hummingbird! Now imagine my excitement and then chagrin at the realization my camera is at home. So I kept the enjoyment of that marvel of evolution to myself. Below is a photo of the alligator flag marsh it was crushing around foraging in.
