This hummingbird  was feeding at a Cardinal Flower, which is a wildflower, that is found in parts of Canada. It blooms late in summer ( August ), for a brief period.  I only saw a male feeding once at these flowers, and for the most part, he seemed rather indifferent to them, so I was fortunate to be able to photograph him.

You obviously had a lot of fun with these little beauties in the summer, Paul - and what a lovely series of images!

Lovely composition, I love the colors and the detail on the hummingbird's head.

Nice addition to your hummingbirds in natural light. This one has a great looking background as well. Should definitely click for higher resolution.

Lovely image, Paul. My wife was just working on a image having a male bird on a Cardinal flower as they used to have them at the local Arboretum.
