My first sighting of the summer. It was raining and of course, my camera was no where near, when the hummingbird appeared. And then he was gone. When he returned, about 20 minutes later, I was ready. No fancy setup. Handheld my camera and shot through the window. A few quick frames and he was gone again. Checking my birding book, this is an immature female Ruby-throated Hummingbird. If that’s not correct, please let me know.
This is just too cool. Check it out:

Sometimes you just “happen” upon things. I’m a big fan of the ridiculous scene, like a yard filled with Christmas inflatables. My daughter, I’m sure, tired of the numerous cell phone pictures she received of blow-up yard ornaments while in class. So when we drove by the large Turkey Hill cow at this Tom Thumb on Navarre Beach, I couldn’t resist.
