What’s on the menu today?

Another male Broad-Tailed hummingbird checks over the feeder before taking a drink. It is almost like he is reading a menu next to the door of a restaurant before deciding to eat there or not.

Compare how the bird’s iridescent throat patch looks gray instead of the brilliant red it takes on when the sunlight hits it just right, which can be seen a little better, below.

I probably could have done a quick refocus and used a deeper depth of field for this one…
