Pretty Lady
I've been extremely busy with work and school lately. Haven't got to spend much time with my favorite people (the forum members). I've also been trying to learn how to use fill-in flash. Think I succeeded with this hummer, just don't know if I'll be able to easily repeat my success. Anyways, here she is. I think this is a female Black-chinned Hummingbird, but am not sure.
