Cinnamon Hummingbird
23-OCT-2005 John Dicus

Cinnamon Hummingbird

This was among the best photo-ops of the trip. After birdwatching along a trail next to some shallow ponds for about an hour, we found these flowers were being frequented by a cinnamon hummingbird. This is our favorite of the shots from that afternoon.

Absolute super capture. I rarely ever see hummers let alone get a camera focused on one. Great shot.
