Bird Pic Of The Week

Ruby-throated Hummingbird

(Archilochus colubris)

Where: Richmond, VA • Glidewell Rd.

Notes: Having seen one of these Hummingbirds sipping away at the Lantana flowers on the back patio this morning, I realized it would probably be one of its last visits of the year. The feel of fall is in the air. This little bird, about only three inches long, will make its way south to Mexico, Central America or as far south as South America, and the West Indies for the winter. Many miles for a bird of only a few inches. This was one of my favorite shots from this season because of the feather detail. I also like the slight motion blur of the back wing that indicates motion. We were blessed this year to have frequent visits from this male. In years past years, we have only had females and juveniles that lack the male's reddish gorget. I no longer mind the seasons changing, for with it comes a change in the local birds and a renewed view of nature.
