About This Image

rufous or Allen's male hummingbird begins the bathing ritual. His iridescent gorget is not glinting here, as the light is not reflecting from it, so it just shows up as a dark area on his throat, when really it is red/gold.

thanks again, Cindy, -- just wish the little fella was facing forward so that his throat would be gleaming red/gold

Another of your beautiful shots Alandra, such a pretty capture!

that's nice of both of you, many thanks, Alex D and Vicki. Such a tiny "mite" taking a bath :)

Alndra, he's stunning. I've never seen such splendid colors on a hummer. Gorgeous image, my friend. Vicki

Really stunning colors. Nicely done.

many thanks for the very encouraging comments, Alan and Mary. Am happy they are sharper than the previous images, - but too bad these are lacking the beautiful iridescent gorget :) The hummer was facing the opposite direction for these latest images.

Hi Alandra, Wow wonderful colors, composition, background, and focusing. I like all the red on this one.
