Thank you! I felt quite fortunate to have this opportunity! I noticed she'd land on this particular branch often, so while most people gathered around the feeder she frequented, I stayed near this branch and waited for her to come back. I think it paid off!

Beautiful. We had one featured on our local news earlier this fall. Do you have any more photos of this bird?

Not edited. I'll try to look through them again when I get a chance and post another.

Great shots of a very unusual bird; it's tough enough to photograph hummingbirds in the first place, let alone a rarity like this. Well done.
