Getting A Breakfast Sip by Grouper Getting A Breakfast Sip by Grouper
Just got back from Arizona and found a bunch of Hummingbirds and spotted this Costa's Hummingbird going in for a sip of nectar. I only had 30 minutes of good light to get a good shot and the winds were blowing at 20+ miles an hour. This guy was perfectly lit by the 8am sum with that awesome sand lit up in the back ground. Enjoy!

Thanks Meihua! What is crazy is that his whole head is that color when he turns. I have some other shots I am going to post that show it. Thanks again!
