About This Image

hummingbird, not sure if it's an Allen's or Rufous, bathing, with water droplets on his beak and head etc.
this is a photo from last June, 2006 - captured from open front window with telephoto lens.

Hi Susan, thanks very much, am happy you found this one. It's hard to capture pics of the males. We have 3 Anna's hummers feeding here during this winter, they do overwinter in this region. The Anna's are slightly larger than these Rufous hummers.

Beautiful close up with lovely color. I especially like that bold eye watching you.

thanks to all of you for the nice comments, Alan, Tam and Steve. Imo tho', believe I've taken better images of a hummer than this one, but just happened to find it when going thru the hard drive on my old computer. However, it did lose something of the sharpness when it was compressed for this site.

One of your best hummingbird shots, Alandra. Love that vivid red bib and the beady eye!

Gorgeous photo Alandra!! I don't know what else to say. I only hope to take a hummer photo this summer that is half as nice as this one. Great Job!
