Ruby throated Hummingbird

This is a female ruby throated hummingbird, similar in overall appearance to the males but lacking the distinctive ruby red throat feathers. I took this photograph about 5 years ago when I was in Canada, a shutter speed of 1/800 sec was used to get the birds body in sharp focus whilst still allowing for wing blur.
