Ruby-throated Hummingbird

This is the only male hummingbird that visits my backyard and let’s me know each spring when he’s returned by always first showing up early in the morning at a feeder I have on my family room window.

I spend a lot of time in my yard watching for him and he comes like clock-work every 25 minutes.

Unfortunately he’ll soon be heading south until next spring.

Taken in Markham, Ontario, Canada with a Canon T2i camera and Canon 4.5-5.6 100-400mm telephoto lens.
