I photographed this tiny bird from a distance last month. Normally these Abaco images would appear on my main website HERE but I am planning a more detailed hummingbird post with close-ups for there, so I’m putting these ones here instead for the very small readership I have for this somewhat untended site. These images are exactly as taken – no colour tweaking, no sharpening, no photoshop – and may not stand enlargement and close scrutiny, because I was several yards away. On the other hand they give a very good idea of how this bird feeds – and besides, the plants are pretty… The red plant is known as a ‘firecracker’

Amazing bird, amazing colour, just beautiful!
Yes, they are gorgeous – and move incredibly fast. Lucky to catch one hovering for a short time!
Thought you might like them, Cindy, being a hummer person! I was photographing Abaco parrots (rare) when this bird popped up in the flowers near me… RH
