Rufous Hummingbird

Ha, finally nailed a decent shot of these guys the other day.
Every year i dedicate a few days to work the Rufous hummers at Maplewood.
Not having a feeder around one must rely on spotting a perch in use and just waiting, yesterday it all came together.
Made a print of it just now and it looks pretty nice i gotta admit  :)  

When i first arrived i noticed one of the birds perched on a big stumpy perch, the perch swallowed up the little guy so i decided to place a smaller branch on top of the stumpy bit with a little scrap piece of electrical tape i had in my bag and sure enough, after waiting a bit i nailed one on it :)
