A real beauty this hummer TB.

A wonderful picture you've taken of this guy lass - very well done.

BTW I've added the new scientific name to your picture details. The one you have hasn't been in use for a few years now. Hope you don't mind.

Thanks - I just did a quick google search and cut and pasted the name. I'm afraid I wasn't paying attention! But I will next time. We had 10 hummingbird species for the day yesterday so perhaps I'll post a couple more. Not all the photos came out so nicely though.

LOL to find the scientific name, all you need to do is click on the Opus tab above and put the common name in the search bar.
