Ruby-throated hummingbird at zebra mallow 6

Summer's winding down, and I figure our hummers will stick around for MAYBE another week or two, at most. They disappeared sometime during the week of Sept 20 last year, so we'll see if that holds true this year.


  1. Great lighting and I love how that purple pops in the center.

  2. Thanks, Jeremy! Zebra mallow is so pretty; it's one of my favourite flowers to photograph with hummingbirds.

  3. Hello Jen

    A truly lovely image- great work
    I wish I had hummingbirds in my area. Even my hummingbird feeders did not coax them in. Would love to photograph these beauties!

  4. Thanks, Shelley! I love photographing these little birds. They're certainly a challenge, but it's very satisfying when you end up with a good capture. :)
