IMG_9437_Anna's Hummingbird (Calypte anna)

This male Anna's Hummingbird (Calypte anna) was playing with me. Landing nearby, it would start chirping until I found it, focused the camera... and then I promptly took a picture of a blur or an empty space, and the process started over. Finally, I got it.

 

This bad boy is huge: he tips the scales at approximately 4.3 grams on average.

 

Thanks to leewaysf for catching my miss-ID.
