Ruby Tuesday — Hummers

You’re going to have to look hard for the color red in this post.

I was watching this hummingbird through the lens of my camera.  The sun was low, and I was hoping he would turn just right so those dark-looking feathers on his throat would light up like Dorothy’s ruby slippers.

Another male comes charging in…

I apologize for the blurriness, but I wasn’t counting on so much action going on!  There have been two males and at least one female battling for dominance of this crab tree.  By the way, I was shooting in burst mode and there was well under a second between the two shots.
