Looking Back by papatheo Looking Back by papatheo
A male Anna's Hummingbird flashes me as I attempt to photograph him. It is quite a treat to be able to be so close to these exquisite little birds and observe them as they go about their daily business of courting, nesting and feeding in
this open air building.
There are eight local varieties of hummers that are in residence here in the various seasons of the year. I think Southwest Arizona is quite fortunate to have such a diversity of these flying jewels. Most of the United States has only the Ruby Throated Hummingbird but we here in Wisconsin supposedly have two other types as well... but I have never seen them.

Arizona-Sonoran Desert Museum near Tucson, Arizona.

Ya gotta love these little birds! My wife and I love to watch the feeders in the early evening and enjoy the aerobatic displays and dogfighting over who owns the feeders. So far, this year, we've had five varieties, Allen's, Anna's, Rufous, Blackchinned and one Broadtail. Excellent color and a great photo!

Good capture, they have some amazing colors. There is a canyon place (Rice or Right Canyon) in the Tucson area a family there sets out all kinds of feeders they welcome people to come and hike and photograph the Hummingbirds.
