I shot this beautiful male Anna’s Hummingbird for 30 minutes inside the San Diego National Wildlife Refuge. Although the bird largely stayed still atop his small perch, on two separate occasions, both immediately after the bird landed, he stretched his wings and retrices for only a few seconds. I was fortunate enough to capture the bird in mid stretch at sunset.
