Humming and Posing

Female black-chinned hummingbird spotted in Black Hawk, Colorado, United States.

I tell people, "when I take enough photos, one is bound to turn out well."  In this case, several hummingbird photos turned out with spectacular clarity and color—but this one, with perfectly aligned fluttering wings, caught in midair, caught my eye.

These delicate creatures prove remarkably resilient and rarely rest while spending the day flying, fluttering, and occasionally fighting (or flirting) between the trees.

Though I am no birder, I believe this is a female black-chinned hummingbird spotted in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado in August 2014.
