It was the perfect evening here in Colorado. The hummingbirds were buzzing all around and the sunset made the mountains look like they were on fire. This broad-tail posed for the perfect shot capturing this sunset.
We've had broad-tail hummingbirds since mid June this year, with 2 pairs that raised babies in our pine trees. The Calliope hummingbirds came in July. They're my favorite because they are so tiny and will land on your hand to feed. The Rufous hummingbirds arrived 2 weeks ago to stir up trouble and fights. I love summer evenings like these.
