Ivins, Utah. Aug. 25, 2013. This male has been here all summer. He feeds in the lower areas of the mimosa tree and the lower vines and the feeder. The Rufous and the Black-chinned feed mostly in the upper branches of the mimosa tree and sometimes in the feeder, although if the Costa’s sees them in his area he always chases them away. Sony A77 w/Sony 70/400 zoom at 400. 1/400 F8 ISO400 from a tripod. Cropped in photoshop.

    Beautiful and lucky you to see more than just the Ruby-throated. Love hummingbirds because you can see on their faces they have attitude.
