Costa's Hummingbird (Calypte costae)

This guy is the latest ruler of the feeder. He is getting used to me. I cleaned the feeder and brought back outside. Before I filled it and put it back in the rack, he was trying to drink while I was holding it. This was taken with 100mm macro...from real close.

Canon EOS 50D ,Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM
1/640s f/8.0 at 100.0mm iso800 full exif

other sizes: small medium large

Wow! that's fantastic! Both the shot and the bird behavior. Love the great feather detail here.
