Nature Photography - Done Naturally

Broad-tailed Hummingbird

Photo of the Week (July 22nd, 2018)

(archive photos of the week here)

During our recent vacation in Colorado and Utah, we spent one night in Winter Park, Colorado. The next morning I took a walk at dawn along the Fraser River, and was greeted by the activity of several Broad-tailed Hummingbirds buzzing about.  They were very active, with males displaying and chasing each other, but this one paused for a little ear scratch (and a nice photo).  Taken in June, 2018.
