And thanks so much for your feedback, Mark. We don't have these hummingbirds in NM either; this photo was taken in Ramsey Canyon, AZ. The Rivoli's (magnificent) hummingbird is one of the largest.

Right? You know, most of them have really long necks, but this one seems especially long, maybe because it's such a relatively large hummie! ッ

Thank you so much, dear Anne. This was one I ignored for a long time, but when I finally took a closer look at it, I was amazed at how clear and sharp it was. Can even see the "nectar" droplets on her bill! ッ
