Not a bird. I was out today getting some Hummers in nice light and this one dropped in for quite a long visit, more than one minute on the same bud. Beautiful Flutterby.....and one more Hummer, lol
Cool color of electric blue, Nature never ceases to amaze me...not that it takes all that much, lol. Not really sure what brand this is, a Swallowtail? The wings look like a weaved cloth, lines like thread running through the wing,
All of the Butterfly's were, 1/200, f/11, iso 400, 800mm, 4.5m out
Dof was hard to get all the way across....

Of course, I had to show some more of Hummerdinger, it is a nonstop defense of the food, this guy is quite busy. I hope He stays long enough to fill that beautiful Gorget that is starting to show in spots
1/320, f/5.6, iso 400, 800mm, 7.8m
