About This Image

Rufous male hummingbird, bathing on our front patio, - captured from the open front window. I love the red/gold colours on his throat/gorget.
This hummer was very elusive, and he didn't hang around that long last summer.

thankyou Wilma for the nice comments, much appreciated. This one is a male rufous and am pretty sure they don't live in your area.

glad you like it, Vince, -- they are fascinating little birds, - he was moving his body and wings slightly as he was bathing there.

Awesome photo Alandra.. Your hummers sure have some bright colors, and you captured them perfectly.

Drop dead color Alandra! Great capture, I kind of like the blurred wings. It conveys the bathing feel of the image well. Don

Neat shot, relatively good color. Too bad there was a bit of movement as you took the shot
