About This Image

First Rufous Male hummingbird to arrive at our patio this spring.
He had just fed at the nectar feeder and was approaching the water bubble to bathe.
He was facing away from me, so unfortunately his brilliant iridescent throat/gorget feathers are not showing red/gold here.

hi Janice, yep, that's the fountain again : ) I'll have to put some different props up, to change things a bit. Problem is, all the fountain stuff is heavy to move around. Thanks for the nice comments.

Hmm is that Alandras fountain and what a great shot of the birds anticipation to land on the bubble to bath

thankyou again everyone, for the nice comments, - Anne, Jas, Chriss and Carol. It is exciting to see these little birds again. To be honest, I didn't capture all the images I could have got, as was enjoying watching him thru' the lens, once he was in the water, and was hoping he'd turn around to face me, but he didn't. However, I did get quite a few pics, and hopefully there will be more opportunities, altho we didn't see him today, as we went out, so weren't here when he came by for his evening bathing session :)

He is still beautiful even though you didn't get the angle you wanted. A great motion shot of his wings beating; the whole image lovely and clear. :)
