Camera Critters #280


Since it is difficult for me to travel to new places to see new birds, bugs and mammals, it is always nice for me when I can find a “lifer” right in my own backyard.

It is a female Anna’s Hummingbird.  This particular species has expanded it range northward and is now rather common in my area.

Hummingbirds are so beautiful. They are also difficult to photograph. How nice of this one to pause and pose for you!
