Ruby Throated Hummingbird

A small bird is hovering in front of a green yew bush, with its wings moving so fast they are almost blurred. Landing gear (feet) is down and his long bill is aiming up to the right. He has a brilliant red throat and pale mottled chest with irridescent green feathers.

We had observed this little bird hanging out on the yew tree outside for some time. I set up the camera and flash close to the bush with the radio remote control inside the house and waited for him to appear. It was a picture of patience as the other 93 taken will attest! Happy Wildlife Wednesday friends.
