"Arizona's Anna's"

This male Anna's Hummingbird was one of several hummingbirds that were truly a delight to photograph on 12/30/2011 in Gilbert, Arizona. Did you know that this bird is only as big as a ping-pong ball and weighs no more than a nickel (coin)? Incredible (and tough, but beautiful to photograph!). This was taken in natural light. The background is a bush in the distance with dead leaves--giving it the warm, uniform tone. The blur is caused by the distance between the bird and the bush--and the low aperture setting (f/6.3, 1/1000sec, ISO 200, 700mm focal distance).
