Nature Through My Lens

Sir Shiny


Here’s the Alpha male in our yard! He guards his territory well. Had just chased an opposer away. A male Anna’s Hummingbird (Calypte anna), with his bright goret shining in the sun.

    Stunning colour! Beautiful…I sometimes wonder how birds see each other because I think I read somewhere once that they see far more colour than we do…imagine!

    • Graham, thank you! It would be something! I would like to have a Hawk’s eyes! They can pick up mice in fields and such!
