I've had these little jewels the last week or so visiting what few flowers I have left.
Female Calliope Hummingbird
Smallest of the US hummingbirds
Only 2 3/4 inches long, most other hummingbirds are more than 3 inches to almost 4 inches long.
Tiny little feathers rim her eye.
It was several hours of perseverance and sitting oh so still to take these photos. I was very pleased since I've never been able to get so many close-ups.
