This female Ruby-throated hummingbird was keeping an eye on me as I took her profile portrait.

Three things I love about this shot.  1) The sharp detail in the bird’s head.  2) The ghost-like blurring of the wings. 3) The little feathers on the neck that look like flecks of gold.

To see more of the detail, click the photo.

Boastful

This male, Ruby-throated hummingbird was showing off for me. I love it when the light hits their gorget just right and you get a flash of that iridescent, ruby-red color they derive their name from.

For bonus points…

gor·get (gôrjt)
n.
1. A piece of armor protecting the throat.
2. An ornamental collar.
3. The scarflike part of a wimple covering the neck and shoulders.
4. A band or patch of distinctive color on the throat of an animal, especially an area of brightly colored feathers on the throat of a bird.

During the few summer months at our rural Wisconsin home, it’s common to hear a distinctive humming sound. If you glance out the window, you’re likely to spot ruby-throated humming birds zipping back and forth, to and fro – competing for a few seconds at the best seat in the house.

I call this “The Breakfast Club” because this group – all females – were photographed around 6 am.

I spent some time the other day taking my first hummingbird photos of the season. This is a female, ruby-throated hummingbird looking straight at the camera.  The wings are just a blur.

To get this unique look, I took all the color out of the original image, added a bit of sepia tone and then a texture effect.
