This image is from last summer, and here the hummingbird is feeding at a Lucifer plant. In about a month from now, the hummingbirds should be returning from the tropics, for the breeding season, so something to look forward to, for those of us who enjoy viewing and photographing them.

Lovely behaviour capture as he is nectaring Paul!  I always look forward to seeing your images of these gorgeous little birds when they return to your part of the world, especially as we have none of them here and your enjoyment of them always shines through in your photos.  :)

Classic pose and wonderful colors.  The hummers should arrive here in Corning NY in about a month.
