About This Image

hummer resting, it has a bug stuck on its beak :)
captured while I was on the front patio yesterday. Believe I was using the 70-200 lens here, as was closer to the flowers that the hummers are feeding on (crocosmia/montbretia and monarda/bee balm).
reminded me of the lines of a song "watching me, watching you".

thanks for the nice comment, Tam. Am not sure if it's a female or immature male Rufous or Allen's hummer. The females are hard to tell apart.

many thanks Carol and Shreekant for the nice comments. Same as me, Carol, I'd love to see the different types of them too, in places like Costa Rica etc

that's a sweet comment, too, Don, very nice of you, thankyou. Yep, guess you are right, - well, not to worry, am sure I'll never get over the hummer addiction, - same as all the other hummer afficionadoes out there.

It is a sweet addiction Alandra and I hope you never find a cure! Love seeing you hummer captures, they are beautiful. Don
