Mister Ruby by PhillymanPete A male Ruby-throated hummingbird on approach to the Salvia flower, from which he will feed.

Here in the Mid-Atlantic States we really only have one hummingbird; the Ruby-throated. Occasionally, a vagrant Anna’s Hummingbird will show up from the West, but this is generally a rare occurrence. Too bad we don’t have a greater variety of hummers as they are some of the most beautiful birds on the planet. Guess I will have to make a trip to Costa Rica at some point with the sole purpose of photographing the great number of species down there. Please view large for best experience.

It is Monday and back to work. Have a Great Day ~! http://flic.kr/p/VjnWrq
