Female Broad-Tailed Hummingbird...

Late afternoon on top of Mt. Lemmon and the hummers are swarming the feeders in preparation for the coming night. Luckily, this is also the best time to shoot them at this location as the feeders are in full sun. Unfortunately, they are often bickering over the feeders and it is almost impossible to capture them in flight because they rarely hover in one spot for more than a second or two.

Depending on the size of your display, the bird probably looks twice its actual size or larger when you view the larger image.
