I've had no luck with any images of Fall migrating songbirds, so I'll have to submit some Hummingbird ones at the present.
This male was feeding at his favourite flowering plant ( a Black and Bloom Salvia ), and was not interested in any other traditional flowers, that are usually Hummingbird favourites. Blue is not a colour that is generally thought of, as being attractive to them-perhaps the nectar was in some way, the key here.

Beautiful shot, Paul! I think this rich flower colour really sets the little hummer off so well and the detail on the plumage is superb!..

Love it!
