We don't get many Rufous, but we do get a lot of there little cousins, the Allen's. This is the first year I saw a Rufous. They tend to stay nearer the mountains and foothills while I'm closer to the coast. Our year round birds are the Allen's and the Anna's. Thanks for the compliment.

i also really like how i learn new things about hummingbirds when i receive a reply from you! :D
today i went out again and saw several rufous hummingbirds. two males were vying for the attention of a female, and ended up getting into a bit of a scuffle over her! it was very cool to see!!

We had similar succulents in our garden down south - the hummers loved them too!

I found they are very fickle during the day! If you annoy them they head for the flowers in the park. In the evening they will put up with the indignities. Now they inspect me so closely they are only inches from my face. It seems funny to be face to face with a hummingbird!

LOL! Yes, now that the wisteria, iris and daffodils are blooming they aren't quite as annoying when I'm a few hours late in filling their feeders!

Cait was out a few evenings ago holding the feeder (trying for the bird on hand with cup routine again) and they were full on battling right in her face :rofl: it is rather disconcerting :nod:

That little bit of light and the ever so slight motion blur of this hummers wings makes me think they are of gossamer and transparent. It's a little surreal--I like it quite a lot. Upon a much closer look I don't think it's motion blur--I dunno :shrug: but it's cool 8-)

There will be some motion blur here, the camera is set for 1/200 sec in sun with the flash acting as the primary shutter at 1/20,000 seconds and the shutter secondary. I like different degrees of ghosting in Hummer photos and can vary it using several different settings.
When the light goes away I set the strobe for 1/30,000 seconds and all motion stops.
