In many bird species, the male is the bird most of us are attracted to. The male rufous hummingbird, with his red-green-yellow throat patch is a spectacularly beautiful bird, but his female counterpart is certainly not without her own beauty. This portrait of a female rufous hummingbird is a favourite of mine. I managed only two shots of this little bird, but what a picture she gave me. Her feminine demeanor, her wondrous colours make for great photography. Enjoy this lovely little bird, only 8 cms (3.5 inches) long from the tip of her long beak to the end of her tail.

I captured this image on Vancouver Island, Canada with my Nikon D300, Nikkor 600 mm lens, 1.4 teleconverter, ISO 500, f8, 1/500s.
