Ruby-throated Hummingbird

Ruby-throated Hummingbird... focus is a tad soft. I try to get shots of them in flight but away from the feeder which is a bit more difficult. If you want to provide food I suggest planting native wildflowers such as cardinal flower, blue lobelia, bee balm, red buckeye, blue sage. Non-natives that they seem to enjoy include any purple flowered sage... red or purple tubular flowers in general. My complete photo archive is available here.
