    Simply perfection Pat, and what a beauty he is.
    We have had a huge lack of hummingbirds this season. 😦

  30. A handsome little fella! One doesn’t always see the red neck feathers in males so clearly.

  31. I am just ever amazed, how you can keep capturing unique bird photos. This one I believe is the BEST story telling one! SO sweet….
