Roofie by daskibum Roofie by daskibum
Sat around for 20 minutes or so. Was low light, and there were few hummingbirds around. This is literally the one picture I fired in that 20 minutes, and I actually got him. :)

Holy cow, that is amazing.
Is it a female? I've never seen one that shade.

With the Rufus hummingbirds I don't know how to tell if its male or female. I just know they are orange. lol

oh! I am only familiar with Ruby-throated hummingbirds, and so I saw this pic and thought maybe it was a female with the bland colors. :XD: Who knows I guess. :) It's awesome nonetheless.

Luck, super skills or both, I've no idea what you have. :P But this is amazing...the detail, and for such small, fast moving animals, is really a treat to see. <3

There are a few around, but I usually only see them when they are defending a feeder. Almost never see when hiking around.
