Well, the rain finally let up yesterday afternoon, and the sun was happy to make a comeback...we were happy to see it back too.
I decided to step outside and do a little more hummingbird hunting with my long lens, and I was not disappointed when a beautiful female hummer decided to show up to the feeder. I'm so glad you liked the other images, and thank you for your kind words!
Not to be forgotten, Mr. Hummingbird showed up too and even gave me a wave hello! ;-)
I think this might be a mating pair, and I don't think this is the same male as in my last post because his throat feathers were far less dramatic than those of the other male.
Just like with the bluebirds, I never tire of seeing the beautifully colored feathers of hummingbirds, and these are her true colors...no increasing the saturation necessary. Their feathers are iridescent, luminous, and simply brilliant, it's no wonder people have tried to capture these colors for years and bring them into their homes...Mother Nature is quite the color expert!
And here she is...Mrs. Hummingbird...she reminds me of that quote...
"Though she be but little, she is fierce!" ~William Shakespeare ~
