Female Ruby-throated Hummingbird.

I photographed this female Ruby-throated Hummingbird in our backyard last night.

They are attracted to our Orange Trumpet Vine flowers. I have seen them all

summer, but could not get a good photograph of one. This female sat on this bare

branch, next to the vine flowers last night, and I finally managed to get some good photos.

Length of these little birds is only 2.8-3.5 inches.

These little birds are incredibly difficult to photograph and the opportunity to photograph them is very limited.

Thanks, for looking.
