That's a pretty bird, Sibil. What is it, do you know?

Thanks. I was on a bird walk and according to our guide it was a rare/seasonal bird for the area. As always, I am a disaster with remembering names, so again, I can't recall the name :oops:

Very well controlled lighting for backlit shots. Did you use flash at all?

Not a lot of meat on 'em, I reckon!  :p

I was surprised to see that you have hummers in Ontario, although, come to think of it, I do recall seeing a film about one species that migrates so far north : it always arrives before the flowers are out, but uses the sap wells drilled by sapsuckers in the meantime - I think...?
