Last year’s Backyard Photo Contest winner shares the story behind her stunning shot.

This photo of an adorable Anna’s hummingbir­d splashing around in my fountain is so heartwarmi­ng. I named this female Splish Splash because she visits my fountain every morning during breeding season. She’s nested here for at least four years. I was thrilled that she won the contest so that she can touch the hearts of millions of people, just as she has touched mine.
