Got Him!



The ruby-throated hummingbird finally stood still long enough for me to take his photo. The male seemed a bit less skittish than the female who is usually at this feeder right outside my computer window.

In other news, if you want to see me when I was skinny and my husband had hair, go take a look at some of the slides I've been scanning:

It's strange.. although the hummingbird feeder looks real, the bird looks like a painting...

Well, it isn't a painting, but I agree, the coloring is a bit odd. Maybe I fiddled with the filters in the photo software. Also, it was taken from inside the house so maybe the window glass made it look odd.

Or maybe it is a Rufous Hummingbird! (but I don't really think so).
