Bejeweled Broad-tailed Hummingbird
Friends of mine had invited me to take some pictures of the beautiful wildflowers on their property. While I was taking photos of the flowers, I could hear the hummingbirds busy at work and noticed one perch on a branch nearby. He flew off too quickly, so I positioned myself on the ground near the bush and waited. When he arrived the next time, I was ready to snap the photo as he proudly displayed his amazing bejeweled feathers! What a joy to behold!
