Humdinger

hum·ding·er/ˈhəmˈdiNGər / Noun: A remarkable or outstanding person or thing of its kind.

There’s little that compares to the dazzle of a male ruby-throated humming bird when the light hits it just right.  If you’re able to watch one while he’s perched, you’ll see flashes of brilliant red with just a slight turn of his head.

Even though the sunlight is coming more from behind this bird, I used a shiny surface to reflect some of that sunlight to the front side, bringing out the colors of his gorget (the neck area).
