It was perching on a branch of a Burning Bush. I noticed only when I was processing the images, that it had a red leaf. I don't know if it had more as I was focusing on the bird. No pun intended.

Well the end result is absolutely beautiful, Karl! What a gorgeous image, wonderful composition, exquisite detail on the little hummer and glorious colour palette.

Hummingbird images are always very special, and yours is excellent with the colours, pose, background, and fine detail, all captured here !
( Certainly a rare migrant for Eastern Canada- have seen many in the past in British Columbia, but never here- I'm sure, Karl, that these photos will be some of your favourites).

Perfect colorful setting for this beautiful hummer. Love the details and the perky pose.
