    Newer Older

    During an unseasonably cold snap, the hummer that visits my feeders needed to fluff his feathers to keep warm. Reminded me of a Christmas tree!

      Beautiful image. Perfect color on the bird, enhanced by the out of

      The colors of the broadbill are so exquisite. Great contrast. With his feathers all puffed.. it reminds me of a pinecone. :-)
