Rufous Hummingbird with tongue Photo by Gayle Rich-Boxman 6.09.18 Rufous Hummingbird with its tongue out! 

 

I was lucky enough to be nearby with a somewhat steady hand. Ahhh, spring! A birder’s paradise! Time for the zing-zing sound of Hummingbirds zipping by at warp speed! The glitter and shimmer of the Rufous Hummingbird at its whopping 3&3/4 inches in length, it still rules the air with speed and aggression! Both males (pictured above) and females do this They protect their food sources with ferocity!

Those are amazing pictures, Gayle.  I have tried to take decent photos of Hummingbirds in the past.  Alas, they are too fast, and I am too slow.

Awesome capture my friend. We have ruby throated ones and they are ferocious because they have to be to survive.  Have a great week.

Aren't they adorable? I love these little jewels so much. We have a feeder right outside dad's window - he watches them for hours.
