Lucifer Hummingbird, rare visitor from Mexico


I spotted this neat looking hummingbird among the dozens of hummers coming to feeders at Ash Canyon B&B, one of the few locations where this rarity is found. Unfortunately it stayed in the shade of the tree where the feeder hung so the photos are pretty dark (a problem with very long dslr camera lens like mine). This male only visited the feeders only briefly while I was there so I was happy to get the chance to see this species for the first time. SeEtta
