This little guy/girl is smaller than most of the other hummingbirds and his/her colors aren’t as vivid so I assume he/she is a juvenile hummer. He/she also was very close to me, about a foot away, which is unusual, especially since I kept clicking the shutter. This top photo is the sharpest, click for more detail.
And now for a few more (rapid) wing positions:
I just found this fun live webcam where a hummingbird in California, Phoebe, has a nest with 2 hatchlings in it, one hers and one adopted. Her “hosts” have been documenting her nesting for the last 6 years. Check it out, it’s fascinating.
