Submitter Debbie shares this great photo of a hummingbird on a nectar-gathering mission. Fun fact: hummingbirds turn their beaks up at any flower whose nectar has a sugar content of less than 10%. We’d say that puts them above even small children in the obsession-with-sugar department.

For more great bird photos (or to submit your own), check out the Birds of a Feather album at The Times’ photo-sharing site, Your Scene.
