Longing, Hummingbird, Linda McCoy

Longing, Hummingbird, Linda McCoy
All summer I watched these little birds frolic at the feeder. I noticed this little guy in the Plum tree, and was a little surprised by the orange coloring. I did a little research, and just as I thought he is a Ruby Throated Hummingbird, however in the non-mating season the male feather color turns orange. He was spectacular in the sunlight. Hummingbirds will rest awhile and I was able to make a few quick sketches and photograph him. It was early autumn, but he was already thinking of heading south. I hope he is warm wherever he happened to land.
