Hummingbird


Calliope, I believe. They have a shorter bill and tail.


I've been trying all summer to get a photo of a hummingbird at a flower. They zip around so fast though! These are the ones that turned out the best, and I can see that I've left a lot of room for improvement. We have both the Rufous and Calliope staying with us during the summer. There are still a few coming to the feeders, but soon they will be leaving for their long journey south. I know they go purely by instinct, but I admire their brave little spirits.
