It is convenient that hummingbirds like to perch on exposed branches - it makes photographing them so much easier!

I love how the light catches on the wings in the bottom middle pic. Beautiful! Where was this taken?

I suppose I left that part out

There's a little mini-canyon that runs up to the back of my house - the bird was perched on a dead bush (looks like it might have been a scrub oak) down there.
