Rufus (Ruby-throated Hummingbird)

Rufus is a Ruby-throated Hummingbird. He comes and goes... He likes to fly and drink sweets. He loves the lens and the flash of my camera!

Yes just one of many of God's beautiful creatures.

We have two different species of Hummingbirds that come to my feeder. I guess there are many different kinds.

They are so unique. I understand they migrate all the way down to Brazil without stopping..

Wow, great picture, ? did you take the picture? if so I am wondering how you accomplished this especially with the "black background" How did you manage to take this at "night" and get the bird so clear without blurring of his wings which they move constantly...you must be a professional photographer or have an exceptional camera?

Who in the world wouldn't LOVE these creatures? They are the most aloof and difficult to observe. Thank you for your efforts which paid off and for sharing!! God Bless you.
