Q: Help with university assignments

A: Do you know?

I managed to get this shot of a ruby-throated hummingbird this morning (while sitting on my back steps). They are easy to see, but difficult to photograph because of facing directly into the sun. Not sure if this a young male or a female.

    Good catch..This afternoon I was out taking pictures when I heard something zinging past my right ear and I am sure if it was even closer it would have landed on my head...It must have been a hummingbird...but it sounded more like a high pitched drill when it was that close:)

    That one is a female Donald. The males have the red on their necks. Great capture and a beautiful feeder too.
