Winter Hummingbird

This is one of our two dominant Anna’s Hummingbirds. This one has staked out the feeder with a heat lamp, though he spends little time there. I really liked the falling snow in this one. The darker background is an out of focus fencing section at the other end of an enclosed garden space behind the house.

This one is awesome, Dennis - I love the wintery feel, and the position of the bird ! No nits from my side :wink: … Love it ! Hans

Excellent color and detail with pleasing pose. The falling snow conveys the cold outside environment well.

Wonderful pose, detail and colors! He looks very much in charge!!
