This little fella is happily sucking away at the nectar within this flower.  You can see his black tongue stuck out and sucking it up like a straw.  I enjoyed taking this photo.  Watching his tongue curl up when finished and then he would move on to the next.  He didn’t care that I was up close and personal either.  I also love his compound eyes.

It may seem silly but photographing this little fella really made my day.  I felt privileged and was in awe for some time afterwards. Sometimes the simplest, smallest things, if you stop and appreciate will give you the most satisfaction.
